Hobbies: I love traveling to different parts of the world and meeting people from different cultures, sci-fi movies, basketball, skiing, hang out with friends and family, and drinking wine.

Why did you choose the University of Minnesota?

This is a residency program with great reputation, focus on clinical oriented radiology, many research opportunities, and fun yet smart people.  It is one of the few radiology programs that I interviewed with that is very honest and resident oriented.  The program has full insight of its limitation and areas that needed improvement, and continues to improve upon.  Most importantly, people (staff/faculties/residents, etc.) are super genuine, friendly, supportive, and welcoming. Just after first year, I have already made some life-long friends in the program.

HobbiesHunting, fishing, hanging out with my wife, playing with our boxer, Archer, trying new beers, grilling and smoking meat, yard work. 

Why did you choose the University of Minnesota?

I don't like hot weather. The program size allows for many new friendships and with that, inspires new interests. The fact that we rotate to several different hospitals gives insight to how different kinds of hospitals are operated and the types of patients you will encounter (quaternary hospital, children's, county safety net hospital, VA). UMN offers several fellowships. High volume and diverse case load.

Hobbies: Cooking, enjoying great food, craft beer, gardening, reading, music, stand up comedy, and strolling around bodies of water with my family.

Why did you choose the University of Minnesota?
UMN has a strong reputation for innovation and academic achievement. While this is certainly earned, I was most impressed by how gracious and inclusive the staff were to me as a visiting medical student. The Twin Cities have world-class medical training while also being a fantastic place to live and raise a family
