What attracted you to Mayo Clinic?
"Mayo Clinic takes great pride in training the next generation of doctors, and the radiology residency program is no exception. Our program is broad and diverse. The breadth of cases and teaching provided by consulting radiologists at Mayo Clinic are second to none. Our faculty strive to improve and expand the scope of IR for the benefit of patients, most notably by pioneering CT and MR-guided ablation techniques which are now included in treatment guidelines, and bringing intravascular stem cell administration from benchtop to clinical research.
I was attracted to Mayo Clinic because I wanted to learn from the best."

When selecting your career path, how did you come to decide on interventional radiology?
"As a first-year medical student, I had the opportunity to shadow Dr. James Andrews in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I watched him perform a hepatic chemoembolization and then sit down at the patient’s bedside and discuss the results of the procedure with the patient and his family. I was fascinated by the combination of clinical medicine, imaging, and procedural skills and decided then that I wanted to be an interventional radiologist, and never looked back."
