Chief Resident


John Pontolillo, MD

Where are you from?

I am from the Jersey Shore.

Where did you do undergrad and med school?

I went to Johns Hopkins University for my B.A. in Chemistry, followed by St. George's University School of Medicine on the beautiful island of Grenada.

What do you do when you're not practicing medicine?

I am an avid biker (even in the Minnesota winters!) and home brewer. I love to cook and am always 

Why did you choose the U of M for your residency?

I feel that the U of M radiology program is fairly well known for imparting to its residents a much higher than average degree of experience, and a very comprehensive and well rounded education. U radiology residents have a terrific reputation and have gone on to very prestigious fellowships and careers. Minneapolis is a very cool city, and Minnesota is a beautiful state.

Where do you see yourself in the near future?

I will be working for a private practice in Bangor, Maine.
