Board Certification: Diagnostic Radiology
In August 2008, MRD welcomed Dr. W. Nathan Holmes, a Harvard fellowship trained pediatric radiologist. Dr. Holmes completed his undergraduate curriculum at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. After graduating from St. Olaf College, he went on to pursue his medical training at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, where he was accepted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Society. Upon graduation from medical school, Dr. Holmes chose to follow in his father's footsteps and was accepted into the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at the prestigious Brown University in Providence, RI., where he was later appointed Chief Resident. Throughout his tenure at Brown University, the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program was recognized for generating the nation's top board scores. In 2006, Dr. Holmes made the decision to enhance his radiological training, and was accepted into Harvard university's Pediatric Radiology Fellowship Program at Children's Hospital Boston.
Alongside his medical expertise, Dr. Holmes is an incredibly well-rounded individual. At the age of sixteen he received the title of "Eagle Scout," one of the highest distinctions bestowed by the Boy Scouts of America. Throughout the course of his medical training, he held multiple positions of leadership and is currently an active member of several medical societies. Whenever possible,
Dr. Holmes enjoys volunteering at his church, sailing, fly fishing, and the great outdoors.
Dr. Holmes believes that his role as a pediatric radiologist provides him with a unique opportunity to not only help diagnose sick children, but also to intervene in situations of abuse. Dr. Holmes is a staunch supporter of the Image Gently campaign, which is working to restructure pediatric practice guidelines to reduce the amount of radiation exposure in children. Dr. Holmes is happy to have found a resting place at MRD, and believes the group to be like none other. "You want to work with people you like... I enjoy working here because everyone is collegial... we thrive off of the strengths of the collective subspecialties to help improve the health of our patients."«Return to Our Radiologists
