Following that, he secured work at Disney World in Florida where he spent a year meeting new people and building relationships. Becoming a fully qualified Doctor in 1996 and enjoying training at the University of Pittsburgh, Lancaster Hospital in California and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Michael followed his passion by exploring his growing interest in plastic surgery.
