Dr. Joshua Morais is willing to take any challenge head on.
He started his journey in medicine – and ultimately, radiology – at the University of San Diego, where he received his undergraduate degree. But it was his time in medical school at George Washington University that led to his conscious realization that radiology was the medical profession for him: “Late in medical school I realized that radiologists had to know everything about everything. In all seriousness, when I discovered radiologists need to have a vast knowledge base around anatomy, pathology, radiographic presentation of disease, physiology, and physics, I knew radiology was a challenge I wanted to undertake.”
And so he did, completing his internship at the Virginia Mason Medical Center before his residency at the University of Arizona and his fellowship in Neuroradiology at the University of Arizona Medical Center. His formula for success was straightforward, “study hard and read as many cases as you can.”
Outside of medicine, Dr. Morais actively challenges himself, mentally and physically. For his wife and two little girls, he strives to be the best husband and father that he can be. For himself, he challenges his own limits, “I love to be physically active and challenge myself to go beyond what I think I am physically and mentally capable of.” One of his favorite challenges is obstacle course racing, such as the World’s Toughest Mudder competition.
Dr. Morais aspirations, while not easy, are summarized simply: “I want to be known as a loving husband and father, a great friend and a hard worker. Someone who lives life to its fullest and without regrets.”
