After graduating Summa Cum Laude in 1980 (as the top pre-med student and scholar-athlete of the year), he attended The Ohio State University College of Medicine on a United States Air Force (USAF) Health Professions Scholarship. He earned his M.D. in 1983 and completed his orthopedic surgery training at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center. Following his internship, he entered active duty in as flight surgeon for the 335 Tactical Fighter Squadron "Chiefs" flying F-4 Phantoms at Seymour Johnson AFB Goldsboro, NC.
