Dr. Otis Fisher discusses his early childhood and the fortuitous circumstances that led to his acceptance to medical school at the University of North Carolina. As a member of the sixth graduating class, he reminisces on the atmosphere of medical education and explains his experience with the decision on where to place the new medical school and its effect on medical training. Dr. Fisher also recounts the many unique experiences that offered him a broad clinical training in medicine, including serving as a base medical commander in Italy at a secret missile silo and participating in flight raids into enemy territory with the Royal Air Force as a flight surgeon. His return to the United States allowed for further academic pursuit in the budding field of interventional radiology, through which he reflects on the progress of medicine from revolutionary developments in imaging technology.
