What did you do before getting into medicine (Radiology)? 

I worked as a private tutor for math and science for high school and college students in the Chicagoland area.

What is the greatest strength of our program? 

I'm just getting started at CU, but I remember noticing the camaraderie among the residents and the collegiate relationship between faculty and residents when I rotated through CU radiology during medical school. This made me feel that CU would be a great place to train.
