Radiology residency at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC was great. Practicing and learning medicine/radiology in a big urban environment was a great experience.
IR fellowship at the prestigious Baptist Cardiac and Vascular Institute was close to the hardest year of my life but worth every minute. Learning my future craft in a special way in at a world famous center was one of the highlights of my early career.”
