Richard’s Answer

I chose to become a physician because I have many family members who are physicians and it looked like a field in which I find job satisfaction. However, I did not truly become passionate about the field of medicine until my third year of medical school during clinical rotations. That was the first time I saw an image guided procedure. I was fascinated by the intersection between medical imaging and treatment. I decided that I wanted to become an interventional radiologist. Now I get to perform image guided procedures every day including angiograms, TIPS, radioembolization of tumors with Y-90, and thermal ablation of tumors.

Whilst growing up i visited the hospital frequently because i was sick often. I was exposed to the noble profession at a tender age and i was amazed at how drugs could make me feel better though i didnt like them. so i kind of like wanted to perform that magic with drugs. it was a natural desire i had and told my parents about. My parents were supportive, so that made me not to disappoint them

My family has lots of different healthcare providers, from doctors to dentists to nurses and PA's. I saw that the healthcare opportunities were boundless. I also know that there will always be plenty of jobs in the medical field. Finally, the practice of medicine itself is very rewarding.
