"Karen Brown is an exceptional educator who explains complicated radiology physics concepts simply and makes them practical to radiologists in training.  She is always available to clear up difficult ideas and provide clarification. 

Her lectures and questions were essential to pass the physics part of the boards in my residency training program.  As an Associate Program Director, I am excited to see her expertise offered widely."

"I have had the privilege of benefiting from Karen Brown’s teaching both as a residency program director and as a learner. Karen successfully applies adult learning principles and visual aid technology to make complex and confusing medical imaging topics easier to comprehend.

Her lectures are concise and highly valued by our residents. It is no great surprise to me that this talented and dedicated educator has received multiple teaching awards."

"My residency program has been blessed to have Karen Brown on faculty for several years. She takes a tough subject – physics – and makes it accessible, and relevant, not only for the CORE exam, but for clinical practice.

It’s clear she is passionate and dedicated to teaching as she is willing to meet with us 1-on-1 outside of lecture time to go over difficult topics if needed. She develops her own question sets and utilizes reverse classroom techniques to ensure long-term mastery of the material."
