During his time as a surgical resident at UW, he finished an extracorporeal life support (ECLS) research fellowship at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Following completion of cardiothoracic surgery residency, he went on to the University of Pennsylvania to complete an advanced aortic surgery fellowship under the mentorship of Dr. Joseph Bavaria.
