Meet the Speakers:

Sylvia Zavatchen has served as the program coordinator of the diagnostic radiology residency program at Cleveland Clinic since 2007. In this capacity, she strives to ensure ACGME compliance in a program training 32 residents. An active member of the radiology program coordinator community, she has served on the Board of the Association of Program Coordinators in Radiology (APCR) since 2012. Locally and nationally, she has presented at many conferences, educating program coordinators and managers. Her desire to help program coordinators, especially new coordinators, understand their responsibilities and the resources available to them has led to a collaboration on the podcast series How Do I Do It?

Joseph Stuckelman, BA, MFA, has more than five years’ experience as the academic program coordinator for the diagnostic radiology residency program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. In 2014, he earned Training Administrators of Graduate Medical Education (TAGME) certification and was elected to the executive board of the Association of Program Coordinators in Radiology. He is an active member of Cedars-Sinai’s Toastmasters, where he has achieved Competent Communicator and Advanced Leader Bronze designations. He enjoys public speaking and has presented at local and national GME education conferences. One of his primary goals is to help coordinators across institutions communicate and collaborate more effectively. He enjoys developing innovative ways to train residents, faculty, and his peers. Stuckelman produced and distributed a text-to-animation video to introduce the Milestones to radiology faculty and residents at Cedars-Sinai. He collaborates with Sylvia Zavatchen on many projects, including the creation of the podcast series How Do I Do It? which enhances professional training for coordinators and managers.
