Show Notes

The idea that we start a little earlier in getting our students acclimated to interventional radiology is going to be so important. And it already has made a difference—I think now, students have a much clearer sense of what it is, at a much earlier stage, than maybe I did. I think it makes a big difference in terms of getting more involvement in our profession.—Derek  L. West, MD, MS

Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with interventional radiologist Derek L. West, MD, MS, about the importance of addressing health care disparities, educating medical students on the promise of interventional radiology, and his ongoing research in cancer treatment.
