He later completed an internal medicine internship at Roosevelt Hospital in New York from 1989-90, followed by a diagnostic radiology residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. He then came to USC for a two year neuroradiology fellowship, and has remained a faculty member of the Keck School of Medicine ever since. Currently, Dr. Go holds the following academic positions: assistant professor of radiology, assistant director of the neuroradiology fellowship program, director of magnetic resonance imaging and director of head and neck imaging. Dr. Go has been an active participant in radiology at the local, regional and national level. He has previously chaired the Education Committee for the Los Angeles Radiological Society and recently was president elect for the LARS at the 60th Annual Midwinter Radiology conference on January 26, 2008. He has previously been a member and chair of the Membership Committee for the Western Neuroradiological Society and currently is on the Program Committee. As a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology since 1996, he has served on the Electronic Education Committee for the past five years. He is currently a reviewer for the American Journal of Neuroradiology, American Journal of Roentgenology and the journal Radiology; and has been an invited author for multiple textbooks and journals. He has previously co-edited two editions for Neuroimaging Clinics of North America on Intracranial Trauma and Infection.
