Dr. Michael Walker has been presented the 2005 Dean’s Impact Award (Faculty) in recognition of his long-term sustained impact on radiology services at the College of Veterinary Medicine Biomedical Sciences, according to H. Richard Adams, dean of the college.
Walker is a 1972 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University. He has been an assistant professor in radiology at Ohio State University and served in various capacities including Radiology Section Head at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine before returning to Texas A&M in 1989 as a radiology professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine.
“Dr. Walker has been instrumental in keeping radiology on board during some tough times, always working to ensure the highest quality of teaching instruction for our students. In addition, he goes above and beyond the call of duty to keep our radiology service competitive and successful in an ever-changing climate,” said Dean Adams. “We are extremely proud to present Dr. Walker, who is both a gentleman and a gentle man, with this well-deserved recognition.”
