Conquest for Radiology: UERJ has its first Full Professor in Radiology

On May 29, an important event marked the history of the Faculty of Medical Sciences of the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ) and of Brazilian Radiology. After her Memorial Public Defense, Dr. Alexandra Monteiro, first secretary of the CBR, was appointed Professor of Radiology at UERJ, a traditional public education institution in Rio de Janeiro and one of the largest universities in Brazil. With that, Dr. Alexandra Monteiro confirms her important role in the radiology community, being the first Full Professor of Radiology at UERJ. The fact, in addition to being remarkable for the specialty, demonstrates the growth of women's performance in general, being increasingly protagonists in their careers. “I am very proud, not only as a woman, but, above all, as a representative of Brazilian Radiology in the category of Full Professor at a Public Teaching Institution of excellence such as the Faculty of Medical Sciences of the State University of Rio de Janeiro”, she says. the Dr. Alexandra. About the Public Defense of Memorial, the doctor says that “it is, to say the least, unusual, because it is the moment in which you expose and make public your personal and professional trajectory, in addition to being a moment of review and reflection on a history built and a possible legacy for future generations”. At the Faculty of Medical Sciences, of the State University of Rio de Janeiro, in addition to the Public Defense of the Memorial, the presentation of a prospective Work Plan is requested, which reiterates and denotes the importance of Ownership as an institutional legacy. In this case, the Work Plan presented for teaching, research and extension had as pillars: the training of physicians for the critical analysis of problems, collaborative learning using educational technologies and the development of attitudes, skills and competences for research and entrepreneurship. Questioned by the CBR reporting team about the main steps that led her to this achievement, Dr. Alexandra points out that goal, determination and focus constitute, in her view, the tripod for any path, regardless of profession, gender or any other item. “In addition, strong roots, excellent friends and professional examples in ethics, good practices and technical and scientific quality complete this tripod, so I thank everyone who illuminated my choices, especially my father, Fernando Monteiro (in memory), a brilliant radiologist in Rio de Janeiro, who taught me to love and be proud of being both a Doctor and a Radiologist”, she concludes.
