    Jason Talbott, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Residence in the Neuroradiology section in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. He earned his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Louisville, Kentucky, in 2007. He completed a one-year internship in Internal Medicine from the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. From 2008-2012, Dr. Talbott completed a four-year Diagnostic Radiology residency at UCSF, followed by a one-year fellowship in Neuroradiology from UCSF, in 2013.

    In 2012, as a resident, Dr. Talbott received the Alexander Margulis Outstanding Resident Research Award and also served as a Chief Resident in the Department of Radiology at UCSF. Dr. Talbott currently serves as the Associate Program Director for the Radiology residency program and chairs the Residency Selection Committee.
