    Fond Memories of Residency: I will forever appreciate my co-residents, the radiation oncology faculty and staff.

In addition, my wife and I absolutely loved living in the Twin Cities, and we made lifelong friendships there.

    Fond Memories of Residency: Donut rounds with medical oncology on Friday mornings (Dr. Levitt always ate one banana - once, Jim Radford did a trick making it pre-sliced without removing the peel. Dr. Levitt didn't bat an eye, but the rest of us were bursting with laughter). Going into labor a month early with my first child while rotating on Dr. Lee's service; Dr. Lee visited me in labor and deliver, with flowers. 2AM LDR cesium removals.
