Dr. Carrie B Ruzal-Shapiro is a passionate clinician-educator. Dr. Ruzal-Shapiro introduced radiology to the first, second, and third-year medical curriculum in 1992. She has precepted over 100 medical students in her fourth-year pediatric radiology elective. In 2002, the graduating class of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons elected her teacher of the year. Dr. Ruzal-Shapiro served as program director of the Radiology Residency as well as the Pediatric Radiology Fellowship. In 1995 she won the radiology residents' Teacher of the Year award. In 2014, she won the Haller Award for Teaching Excellence from the Society of Pediatric Radiology; this award is granted yearly to that individual who has demonstrated evidence of outstanding ability to educate trainees (medical student, resident, and fellow) and who has shown sustained substantial excellence in mentorship skills. Dr. Ruzal-Shapiro's primary focus is the clinical practice of pediatric radiology.

Her insight and collaboration with her clinical colleagues shows how the radiologist can truly impact patient care. Dr. Ruzal-Shapiro's research interests are wide.
