Getting to Know

I really liked the people I met when I interviewed at Baptist. I could easily see myself working with and becoming friends with the other residents. The staff were also very friendly.

Each month we are on a different rotation, but most days are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. with a noon conference. Sometimes the amount of information radiologists have to know seems challenging, but there are many rewarding aspects of our career such as giving reassuring news to a patient after her breast biopsy or MRI.

I had never been to Memphis before I interviewed at Baptist, but my family loves living here. There are a lot of parks and trails for biking and running near our house. Also, we have enjoyed the Botanic Gardens, Memphis Zoo, Children’s Museum, Memphis Grizzlies, and Redbird games! There are so many awesome things to do in Memphis! Whether you are single or married, with children or not, there is something for everyone here.

I enjoy traveling, photography and college football. Go Gamecocks!

Married with two children.

I chose radiology because I thought it was a very interesting field while on medical school rotations.

Baptist has been a wonderful place to learn and grow professionally. The residency provides a nice balance of academics combined with the case load of a large busy private practice. Furthermore, Memphis is a warm, welcoming, and exciting city. I’m very thankful for the time I have spent here and encourage you to come experience it for yourself!
