Mahan Mathur, MD

Associate Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging; Vice Chair for Education, Radiology & Biomedical Imaging

I am a fellowship-trained expert in abdominal and pelvic imaging and currently serve as both the vice chair of education and as the Yale School of Medicine (YSM) director of medical student education in Radiology. In my role at YSM, I oversee the Radiology curriculum, ensuring its successful implementation across all levels of training.

My passion for mentoring and teaching has been a driving force throughout my career. As a former associate program director for the Diagnostic Radiology Residency, I successfully mentored several classes of residents, guiding them to successful graduation. Additionally, I have had the privilege of mentoring numerous other residents and fellows on various educational and research projects at Yale. These efforts have been recognized through multiple Department Teacher and Mentor of the Year awards over the last decade. As the inaugural chief of the Body Imaging Division, I also gained experience in mentoring faculty members and collaborating with department and hospital leadership to optimize clinical workflow and promote work-life balance.

At the undergraduate level, I actively participate in the Yale Medical Professions Outreach Shadowing Program, where I mentor undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in medicine.

Personally, Yale holds a special place in my heart. I completed my residency training at Yale from 2008 to 2012 and have been a faculty member since 2013. My wife, who works in the Department of General Internal Medicine, and I met here, and our children were born at Yale New Haven Hospital. Given the profound impact this institution has had on our lives, I am eager to give back by guiding the physicians of tomorrow.
