“I initially set out to study informatics and analytical math, my career path took a turn while working in a radiology department sorting films. My newly discovered fascination with medicine—specifically radiology—eventually led me to the Barmherzige Bruder Hospital where I am currently the chief radiology resident and where my passion for medicine and teaching continues to grow.“
Nikolaus Mayr, MDChief Resident of Radiology, Department of Radiology, and Nuclear Medicine, Salzburg.
