Dr. Troy Voeltz grew up in Rochester, MN, so the medical field had a strong presence in his life as the news and papers often talked of the many exciting things happening at Mayo Clinic. He left Rochester to study Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Minnesota, where he would also go on to attend medical school and do an intern year of medicine.
He lived in Chicago for four years while doing his radiology residency at St. Francis hospital. While there, he was appointed chief resident of his class and served on various hospital committees and presented original work in breast imaging at the Chicago Radiological Society meeting. After four years in Chicago, he moved back to Minneapolis where he completed a fellowship in breast imaging at the University of Minnesota.
