Dr. Choi is a graduate of a combined MD-PhD program funded by the NIH Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the New York University School of Medicine, where he received his PhD from the Department of Molecular Oncology and Immunology. After completing his clinical internship in internal medicine from the UCLA Medical Center, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the UCLA Crump Institute of Molecular Imaging. He completed his diagnostic radiology residency at the UCLA School of Medicine, under a research track through the UCLA Medical Imaging Informatics Division. He subsequently completed a clinical radiology fellowship in body imaging at the Stanford University Medical Center in 2010, prior to joining Moffitt.
