"When asked to reflect on my time in Ann Arbor, I wasn't sure where to start. My core feeling is one of happiness; I really enjoyed my 4 years as a radiology resident. Without question, U of M radiology is a nurturing environment combined with cutting edge radiology-what training could be better than that? More specifically, I remember case readouts, noon conferences, section conferences, and resident commaraderie as high points. I also fondly remember the non-medical parts of my residency, such as discussions of music with Drs. Cohan and Rubin; meeting interesting people in the Ann Arbor Track Club, and singing in the Ann Arbor Choral Union. In hindsight, these experiences shaped my life as much as my formal radiology training did."
