Medical School: Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
Undergraduate School: UC Berkeley
Intern Program: MetroHealth Medical Center, Cleveland, OH - Internal Medicine
Looking For In Residency: I was looking for a program that would provide both excellent clinical training and fantastic research opportunities--UW fit the bill for both.
UW Strengths: One of the greatest strengths of UW is the breadth and depth of clinical training. We rotate at a quaternary medical center with extremely active transplant programs (UWMC Montlake), a county hospital which serves as the only level 1 trauma center in the entire Washington/Wyoming/Alaska/Montana/Idaho region (Harborview Medical Center), a dedicated cancer treatment center (Seattle Cancer Care Alliance), a top notch children's hospital (Seattle Children's), and a great VA hospital. Each site offers a different experience, with a unique mixture of radiologic studies and patient populations. After spending 4 years at these different sites, a UW grad can handle any study which comes across their radiology worklist.
Advice: Choose the program that will help you become the best resident and radiologist possible--for me, that was UW.
Hobbies: Running, hiking, playing with my dog, cars
Clinical Interests: Neuroradiology, clinical research
Honors and Awards: ACR-AUR Research Scholar Program (2020)
Extracurricular: I volunteered each year at the Seattle King County Clinic, which provides completely free care to those in need, including X ray, ultrasound, and mammography. Each year it was a fun, incredibly rewarding day. For me, the highlight of the clinic was our workflow in which we directly conveyed results to patients. It is truly satisfying to put a face to the name at the top of a radiograph, and then to see that face break into a smile as we tell them that their lungs are clear, or that their pelvic ultrasound was normal. It is of course harder to convey a concerning imaging result, but fortunately we had translators to help make the message clear, volunteers to help guide them back to the ordering provider, and social workers thinking creatively to find a way to obtain follow up and treatment. I was honored to be part of the team and I hope to keep volunteering with the clinic for many years to come!
