This week’s resident is a native of California, growing up in Lafayette.During high school, he was quite the euphonium player - he earned all-county band honors and performed a solo at the Sydney Opera House.For undergraduate school, he attended Duke University, majoring in Biomedical Engineering.At Duke, he was known for doing the butterfly (not the dance move) - he was a four year member of the varsity swim team and was an ACC Scholar Athlete each year.Before entering medical school at UCLA, he spent a year at the NIH as a research fellow focused on the automated segmentation of abdominal organs from CT scans and the analysis of volumetric and linear image biomarkers.At UCLA, he was an active volunteer for the UCLA Medical Mobile Clinic and was a class officer, serving on the Professionalism Committee.His research focused on evaluating the response, complications and local recurrence of thoracic malignancies following IR cryoablation procedures. Even though a sand trap may get the best of him, he is still an avid golfer.He also enjoys skiing, reading fiction and playing Sonic the Hedgehog.Toot your euphoniums for JESSE SANDBERG!
