About Dr. Gule-Monroe
Dr. Gule-Monroe is a clinical neuroradiologist with a focus on interpretation of diagnostic images and US guided fine needle aspiration of head and neck cancer. In 2005, Dr. Gule-Monroe graduated with a degree in medicine from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, in which she received numerous academic awards and honors. She completed 2 years of General Surgery residency, University of Texas Houston in 2007 and subsequently completed residency in Diagnostic Radiology followed by Neuroradiology fellowship, both at University of Texas Houston. Dr. Gule-Monroe was awarded a 2 year NIH T32 Research Training Grant and completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center in the department of Head and Neck Surgery resulting in three significant publications. She is trained in General Surgery, Radiology, and Neuroradiology.
