Clinical Professor

Radiology ( )


"I returned to the University of Iowa because I missed the Midwest and wanted to be close to family. I grew up in Iowa City and love both the city and the university. I have been practicing breast imaging since 2006, when I completed my fellowship at the University of Virginia. I enjoy all parts of my job including that I get to speak with patients daily about their breast health, I get to have a positive impact on breast cancer outcomes, and I get to work with other passionate people who also care about women and breast health. In addition to my clinic duties I also have the privilege of training medical students, residents, and fellows about breast imaging. UI Health Care is a special place to call my work home." — Brandi T. Nicholson
