I grew up in Texas, attended the University of Texas at Austin, and spent time in China to teach after college. Afterwards, I moved to New York City for medical school at Cornell. I will remain in NYC as a radiology resident at NYU next year, enjoying the city’s arts, food, and sports (go Yankees!). While at Cornell, it was no secret what a tremendous institution we had across the street in Memorial Sloan Kettering. Through clinical rotations and a research fellowship at MSKCC, its transitional year program seemed like a logical bridge between medical school and a radiology residency. The pathology varies widely, and oftentimes is unique. Meanwhile, the available technology and efficiency of everyday functions on the wards preserves a high standard of patient care. All of these strengths afford the time to make this year relevant to my chosen field. Most importantly, I feel fortunate to experience intern year in a supportive, friendly environment among some wonderful people.
