What I like Most About VSPN

This is my first time working with VSPN. The VSPN team members that I have met are extremely friendly and encouraging. I took a VSPN course in November 2015, and was very impressed. It was extremely informative and the instructors were very knowledgeable. I have a passion for radiology and teaching, so I couldn’t be more excited about instructing this class and learning from the students. I am proud to be a part of the VSPN team and excited to network!
