Ross Student Earns Residency in Diagnostic Radiology
Dan Cohen, MD, (Ross ’16) recalled that most of his time on the Dominica campus during the basic science curriculum of his medical education was spent studying.
“I thought the island was a beautiful and perfect place to study my basic sciences. The majority of my time was spent studying in the library and at Jenner Hall,” he said. On campus he also served as the vice president of the Neuroscience society. Now his studiousness has paid off and he has matched at Henry Ford Hospital Detroit Michigan for transitional year, a required preliminary intern year and then he will move on to a residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
Dr. Cohen grew up in Miami, FL and Grand Rapids, MI and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, where he learned about Ross through the Premedical Honor Society Alpha Epsilon Delta. He graduated from Ross last November and then, “focused completely on my interviews for the Match,” he said. While awaiting the results of Match Day he worked at an urgent care and orthopedic clinic.
The area of medicine that Dr. Cohen is most interested in is Interventional Radiology. “It is the perfect combination of medicine and diagnostics,” he said. “I would get the opportunity to read my own diagnostic images and be able to perform minimally invasive endovascular procedures. I would also get to follow up with my patients in out-patient interventional radiology clinic. This is a very new, innovative and interesting field in medicine.“
