During his undergraduate studies, Aroon worked as a PCT at a hospital named Ellis Medicine. There, he realized his interest in medicine and physics. After becoming the first Medical Physicist Intern at Ellis Medicine, Aroon realized his passion for the field. It is now his dream to become a DABR certified Medical Physicist.
