‘How does one go from psychology (neuroscience), art and then switch it up and go into medicine? Dr. Nadelman even spent multiple years in Italy developing her artist vibes but ultimately the practice of medicine is an art as well as a science so the two melded nicely.
Some people know they want to not only do medicine but which specialty from high school age, but she was a bit unsure and had to try out a few things to figure out that Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) pathology was her best fit.
When she was in the process of residency, the big push was primary care but through a series of events and personal contact she found that pathology was her path. She was also a talented surgeon but with her desire to have a family and balance family with the surgery responsibilities, Dr. Celina decided that wasn’t her path.’
