Why I became a doctor/radiologist
Growing up, I loved biology and knew I would pursue a career in the sciences. In college, I took a course on Human Immunology, which was fascinating. Between that course and my experiences volunteering at local hospitals, I found that I really enjoyed both medical science and patient care. The practice of medicine is always changing and offers the ability to have a positive impact on your community, which makes for an interesting and fulfilling career. I chose radiology because of its unique position within medicine at the forefront of diagnosis and problem-solving and its essential role in patient care.
