Michael Atalay

East Greenwich, RI

Dr. Michael Atalay ’84, P’17,’19,’23 (son of Bulent Atalay ’58, himself a former SAS Board member) is a graduate of Princeton University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in physics, and The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where he obtained MD and PhD degrees in biomedical engineering. Following a medical internship at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston (where he met and married the daughter of one of his patients) and a research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital, he completed residency and fellowship training in radiology back at Hopkins.

In 2003 Dr. Atalay joined the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at Brown University where he specializes in cross-sectional imaging and cardiac MR and CT. He is currently professor of diagnostic imaging and medicine (cardiology), vice-chair of imaging research, director of cardiac MR and CT, and medical director of both the Brown Radiology Human Factors Lab and the Brown Radiology Advanced Imaging Lab. He works closely with trainees at all levels including undergraduates, medical students, radiology residents, and radiology and cardiology fellows, and he annually runs a small group session for second year medical students in cardiac pathophysiology at the Brown medical school. He regards teaching as one of the great pleasures of academic medicine.

He and his wife Elizabeth have four children and live in East Greenwich, Rhode Island.
