Be the Best Learner in the Room, Advise Followed by Dr. Ty Vachon
Dr. Vachon credits his success to some great advice he received from a teacher: “be the best learner in the room and keep it simple.” It’s a maxim that he has followed diligently as a physician and healthcare leader, from his time in medical school to his career in the Navy. During his military… service, he was a flight surgeon with the Marine Corps deployed to the Persian Gulf in 2009. He returned to focus on radiology, where he became fascinated with machine learning. Recently the Healthcare Performance Insider caught up with Dr. Vachon and learned more about why he describes himself as a radiologist, informaticist, medical imaging domain expert, and machine learning enthusiast.
