Show Notes

Dialysis, stroke, peripheral arterial disease, oncology, …these affect patients of all races. We know there are health care inequities—Black and Brown patients, and poor patients, uninsured tend to be afflicted more. We can recruit the best and the brightest students across the country and across the world to be part of the greatest specialty in all of medicine—and that’s image-guided medicine.—Vishal Kumar, MD

Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with interventional radiologist Vishal Kumar, MD, FSIR, about educating medical students about IR, the importance of fostering diversity, and how the two intersect with the SIR Foundation Grants for the Education of Medical Students (GEMS) Program.
