saddekni.jpgOn June 16, 2021, Souheil Saddekni, M.D., FSIR, FAHA, retired from the UAB Department of Radiology. Dr. Saddekni joined the faculty at UAB as an associate professor in 1991, advancing to professor with tenure in 1996. Since joining the department, Dr. Saddekni has had an impactful and distinguished career as a nationally and internationally recognized pioneer of interventional radiology, educator, and researcher.

In special recognition of his 30 years of faithful and distinguished service to UAB, the Department of Radiology and the Heersink School of Medicine wish to acknowledge Dr. Saddekni by appointing him as professor emeritus of radiology.

 “Lessons never end. I never think that I learned my lesson, we’re liable to repeat mistakes, but more likely not to repeat them if we learn. We learn something every day, but the most valuable lesson is to be confident but humble and willing to work with people young or old, big or small. No one is too ignorant to ignore or very smart to worship” said Dr. Saddekni.

Congratulations to Dr. Saddekni on appointment of professor emeritus of radiology! A celebration in Dr. Saddekni’s honor will be announced soon.
