Meet Dr. Dym
J.P. Dym will tell you he’s always had a fascination with human anatomy — especially the central nervous system: “Radiology brings us as close to the human fiber as we can go, non-invasively.” And interestingly, radiology does it in a way that draws on a few of his other passions: photography and technology.
“I have studied and practiced photography whenever I’ve had free time since high school. And it’s been a passion of mine ever since”, J.P. recalls. “In medical school at Georgetown University I discovered a fascinating cousin of photography in radiology. By utilizing the power of complex imaging techniques we can see things in a whole new way, which plays a central role in diagnosing so many neurological diseases. There’s nothing like it.”
Given his path to radiology, J.P.’s advice to aspiring radiologists is almost self-explanatory: “Specialize in what you are passionate about, and not what may or may not have the best jobs or salaries at the time. In the long run you want to do what you enjoy the most.”
But radiology isn’t the whole story — and the rest is quite the opposite. In his personal life, J.P. spends what time he can outdoors — running, hiking, biking, you name it! — and he’s sure to bring his family with to enjoy the California weather. The outdoors give him ample time to soak in some much needed light; bond with his family; slowdown in an ever moving world; and find the perfect shot for his next photo.
As a lifelong student and teacher, J.P. only wants to be remembered as such. He has always been a vigorously passionate student, and will continue to channel that passion to pass on what he’s learned to the next generation.
