Current Position: 2nd Year Medical Student at University of Cincinnati College of Medicine
Mentor: Raouf Amin, MD
2012 Summer Research Project: The study of Airway Dynamics in Children with Sleep Apnea by Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Abstract selected for presentation at the 2013 American Thoracic Society Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
"My Fellowship experience was invaluable. Dr. Amin immediately made sure that not only did I have an interesting clinical research project, but that I also gained diverse exposure to the clinical practice of pediatric pulmonology. While working with a large research group consisting of radiologists, pulmonologists, ENT surgeons, and even aerospace engineers, I was still responsible for my own project. I learned anatomy, radiologic principles, tenets of surgical management, and the physics of the upper airway throughout the summer. The shadowing opportunities and “lunch talks” throughout the summer were very engaging and insightful. Everyone involved with the program, including administrators and physicians, were extremely helpful and happy to have us there. I would highly recommend this program to any student interested in either clinical or laboratory research looking for exposure to clinical pulmonology in general."
