Clinical Description
Jeff Creasy, MD, earned an undergraduate BS in physics from Michigan State University and an M.D. degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After two years of general surgical training at Duke University, he returned to Chapel Hill for a radiology residency, neuroradiology fellowship and two years of faculty appointment as an Assistant Professor. He joined the Vanderbilt faculty in 1988 as an Assistant Professor, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1998. He was made Professor in 2011, and became section chief of neuroradiology in 2015. He is past president of the Society of Computer Applications in Radiology (SCAR), the Southeastern Neuroradiology Society (SENRS) and the Tennessee Radiology Society (TRS). He has held the Certificate of Added Qualifications in Neuroradiology, since its inception in 1995. He became a Fellow of the American College of Radiology (ACR) in 2009.
