Radiology Specialty

Dr. Shurman graduated from the Temple University School of Medicine, Class of 2000. He completed his residency in radiology at Albert Einstein Medical Center and his fellowship in Neuroradiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, both in Philadelphia. He has been teaching radiology to medical students and residents at St. Luke's University Hospital - Bethlehem for the last seven years and considers it an honor to contribute to the future of medicine by teaching medical students.

Teaching Medical Students is Extremely Rewarding

“Being able to teach medical students is an extremely rewarding part of being a physician at a teaching hospital. Interacting with the students, participating in their education and having the privilege of helping to shape the practice of medicine for years to come is an enormous honor,” said Dr. Shurman. “Being recognized for something that I truly enjoy doing is very fortunate.”

Dr. Shurman's clinical practice focuses on a combination of neuroradiology and diagnostic imaging. Neuroradiology includes interpreting brain, head, neck and spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies and cerebrovascular computed tomography (CT) angiography studies.
