Beckmann was recommended by Susan John, MD, chari of the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging and John S. Dunn Distinguished Chair in Radiology.
"Dr. Beckmann is an experienced musculoskeletal radiologist who works closely with technologists in our practice to ensure highest quality musculoskeletal imaging. I know that he will be a tremendous asset to the Board," said John, who is the chief of diagnostic and interventional imaging at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center.
Beckmann earned his medical degree at the University of Kansas. He completed a residency in diagnostic Radiology and a fellowship in sports, orthopaedics and emergency imaging at McGovern Medical School.
