On June 14, the Department of Radiology of Cincinnati Children’s celebrated the 69th Fellowship Class of 2019. Dr. Eric Crotty, Dr. Bill O’Brien and Dr. Andrew Trout presented the certificates of completion to the graduating fellows. Faculty, fellows and families attended the celebration. It was a bittersweet night of celebrating a year-long Fellowship Program. Through the year we’ve gotten to know and created friendships with the fellows. Now they will be moving onto the next chapter in their lives.
I can remember the very day I took their incoming group photo, and at the dinner celebration, I captured their graduation photo. It was a pleasure to see their transition in the Fellowship Program.
Here is a wrap-up of the Class of 2019:
Dr. Deborah Brahee started her career at the University of Minnesota and soon found herself down in St. George University(Grenada, West Indies), where she received her medical degree. Her residencywas at Allegheny General Hospital. She completed a pediatric rotation at Cincinnati Children’s during her residency. Deborah will be moving on to the Cleveland Clinic as a faculty in Radiology.
Dr. Austin Dillard went to Mississippi College for his undergraduate degree and received his medical degree from the University of Mississippi. For his residency he attended Baptist Memorial Health Care. He is going to work for the University of Mississippi Medical Center where he will be one of two Pediatric Radiology faculty members. His co-workers will be missing his wonderful sense of humor and his laughter.
Dr. Nathan Fagan started in Youngstown State University for his undergraduate degree and transitioned to Northeast Ohio Medical University for his medical degree. He completed his residency in Aultman, also in northern Ohio. He’s continuing his education up the road at Nationwide Children’s (Columbus, Ohio) for an Interventional Radiology Fellowship.
Dr. Reem Hasweh lived away from her family for quite a bit of time in order to continue her medical education. This showed her dedication to her profession and to improving herself. Reem completed her medical school in Jordan and finished her residency in Amman, Jordan. She also completed a neuroradiology fellowship in Galveston, Texas, before coming to Cincinnati Children’s. Reem will be going back to Jordan to be united with her family.
Dr. Brendan McCleary’s career brought him to Bryn Mawr College for his undergraduate degree and he then moved on to the University of Rochester for his medical degree. He completed his residency at Lahey Health. Brendan will be joining Dr. Brahee at the Cleveland Clinic after spending a few more months here in Cincinnati Children’s training in fetal imaging.
Dr. Tiffany Tavernier completed her undergraduate degree at Rice University and attended Meharry Medical College (Nashville, Tennessee) for her medical degree. She completed her residency at Tulane University. She will be practicing her career at the University of Texas, Health Science Center at Houston, close to family and friends.
This completes Part 1 of our farewell to our Class of 2019, Radiology Clinical Fellows.
