He seized the opportunity to work in a hospital and soon found that medicine was the career he never knew he always wanted. He pursued his Medical Doctorate at Michigan State, and chose gastroenterology as his subspecialty, fascinated by the field’s potential for exploring a variety of interventional therapies.
