Washington, D.C., May 7, 2019The Medical Society of the District of Columbia (MSDC), the largest medical organization in the District of Columbia representing Washington-area physicians, is pleased to announce that today the Council of the District of Columbia issued a ceremonial resolution to “recognize and honor Dr. Raymond Tu for his incredible career as a radiologist and his service in treating the residents of Ward 8 and the District of Columbia.”  Dr. Raymond Tu is the current president of the Medical Society of the District of Columbia and a member of the Medical Society’s delegation to the American Medical Association.  The Medical Society congratulates him on this well-deserved recognition. 

As Chair of the MSDC Board of Directors, Susanne Bathgate, MD, said, “it has been an honor to work with a dedicated physician leader like MSDC President Dr. Raymond Tu. He is known for the humor, passion, creativity, and inclusivity he brings to his work, as well as the commitment to public health, service, and excellence in the field of medicine for which he is being recognized.  He is a tireless champion for improving health and the practice of medicine in the District of Columbia.”

Dr. Tu’s leadership and commitment to public health knows no bounds. He is the Chair of Radiology at the United Medical Center; Chair of Radiology at BridgePoint Hospital, National Harbor and Capitol Hill; and Clinical Associate Professor, Radiology, The George Washington University. He is quick to note that the District of Columbia is a minority-majority city, emphasizing the importance of diversity and inclusivity in healthcare. He has written numerous scientific articles and presented at national and international medical meetings on the topics of Medicaid, food deserts, health disparities, the opioid crisis and practice improvement.
