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 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."
