Hi, I'm Tom Warfel. Thanks for dropping by.

Salient facts about me. I
- recently completely Board certification in Radiology!

- am presently doing a fellowship year at UPMC that is 50% Thoracic Imaging, 50% Radiology Informatics

- completed Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at UPMC ('98-'02)
- was formerly an intern at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, WA.

- am an MD/PhD graduate
- operate Amateur radio - licensed as KA8HML

- avidly enjoy "Ask Dr. Science" / Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre

A rather long (and slightly outdated) biographical sketch describing who I was, and what the heck I was trying to do in Pittsburgh

- Some notes and photos from Guatemala medical mission trip 2 yrs ago are here

Some of my favorite photos to date
