Molding Future Radiologists Through Excellence in Teaching and Research

"Dr. Judy Yee truly gives the students the ability to spearhead projects when she sees something that might impact coming regulations, guidelines, and anything that might benefit the patient of the future,” says David Zucker. “She is an excellent teacher and gives her full support to students in their projects. She is the kind of mentor that always makes sure she’s available and helps students feel important even with the many other responsibilities she has.”

“Her character is like that of other doctors, fellows, and residents I’ve met in the Department and that is what really made the difference when I chose radiology as my profession,” explains Zucker. “Radiology is a field with a seemingly limitless amount of information to learn. That can be overwhelming. This is a special place, though, where instead of being intimidated, I’ve been inspired to carry on the Department’s devotion to teaching excellence and top-level research performance."

David Zucker graduated from Brandeis University in 2009 and then went on to pursue a Master’s degree in biology and studied mechanisms of aging at Dominican University of California in association with the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. As he debated which field he would ultimately study, David reached out to Dr. Yee at the SFVAMC. He is currently in his 4th year at Sackler School of Medicine in Tel Aviv.
