Dr. Park is a self–confessed geek. "I have a background in computers and technology through my biomedical engineering concentration at Harvard," he explains. He continued his interest in technology through medical school at Columbia University, residency training in general surgery at St. Luke's/Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City, and vascular surgery fellowship training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. His first position after finishing training was on the faculty at Columbia University in New York, at the College of Physicians and Surgeons. "it was there that I was introduced to FileMaker," he says. "The Columbia Weill Cornell Division of Vascular Surgery, at that time, was comprised of 10 vascular surgeons spread over three states and eight hospitals, and we were in need of a solution that would allow for billing of operations and registry of cases."
