Jennifer Young, MD, chose the challenging career path as a physician because
of her love for science and having great role models in her life. Dr.
Young had a few health complications of her own when she was younger but
had very compassionate doctors who inspired her to work in health care.
When choosing a specialty, she found Interventional Radiology extremely
interesting as a medical student. “I get to use advanced technology,
such as x-rays and ultrasounds, to look inside a person and perform minimally
invasive procedures,” said Dr. Young. “Some of my patients
are too sick to have regular surgeries, but I am able to do procedures
without cutting them and that is very rewarding.”
Dr. Young earned her Doctor of Medicine from Trinity School of Medicine
in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. She completed a General Surgery internship
at Detroit Medical Center, a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at MetroHealth
Hospital, and her Fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology
at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.
Growing up in a small farming community in Canada, Dr. Young wanted to
find a job in a similar rural environment. As a newcomer to the community
and Good Samaritan, she hopes to make an impact on the health and well-being
of her patients.
Dr. Young and her fiancé live near Lawrenceville, Illinois and are
planning a wedding for this October. In their free time, the couple enjoy
hiking and outdoor activities, as well as dabbling in technology with
3D printing and flying homemade drones.
