SOM students University of Washington electives experience

The first day that marked the beginning of a life defining experience at the University of Washington (UW) began with the rich, strong aroma of coffee wafting through the hospital lobby, a sharp contrast to the ice cold air outside.  After all, we were at the home of Starbucks. We had such an amazing time shadowing residents and attendings in the Radiology department during this 4-week medical elective. We got undivided attention from brilliant attendings, fellows and residents who were giftedly funny, nice, and took their time to offer words of wisdom amidst amusing anecdotes.
