What do you love most about living in NYC? What I love most about NYC is the energy, diversity and culture. I love that no matter where you go, there is always a mix of people from different backgrounds and walks of life and always something new to explore. New York City also lends itself to not only a culturally rich experience through countless museums, architectural works, restaurants, and performances but also to an enriched educational experience by nature of the melting pot with people from all over the country and the world. We not only see the bread and butter pathology but also an incredible range of rare diseases that are endemic to other parts of the world.
What drew you to Cornell Radiology? I remember on my interview day, I could tell how well everyone knew each other-- both residents and faculty, and that really stuck with me. All of the people I met seemed so genuinely happy, and the fact that so many residents stay as fellows and stay later as attendings really speaks for itself. Another main draw for me was the fact that resident feedback is continuously sought out by our Chairman and program directors in our monthly Chairman's lunch, and that feedback is taken very conscientiously. It really sets Cornell apart and ensures that we're never stagnant and constantly improving.
