Observership Program with Israel

Nina Baram, MD - First Faculty Observer from Ashdod, Israel

Attending radiologist from Israel, Nina Baram, MD was the first to complete the observesrhip at the Department of Radiology, as part of a new collaboration between the University of Massachusetts and Samson Assuta Medical Center in Ashdod, Israel.

I spent 4 weeks as an observer in the Abdominal Imaging Division at the Department of Radiology. The doctors and the staff were extremely welcoming and quickly made me feel part of the team. During the observership I saw a lot of interesting cases, especially cases of abdominal and pelvic MRI, in addition I attended the multidisciplinary conferences. It was a great pleasure to work with all senior radiologists. I would like to give special thanks to Dr. Young Kim, Dr. Alan Goldstein and Dr. Khashayar Rafatzand for sharing their knowledge with me. This program was a really valuable experience for me. It helped me broaden my professional knowledge and update my interpretive skills. I really enjoyed my time here and I am very grateful to Dr. Max Rosen for inviting me and offering me this opportunity.
