Dr. Rawie was raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After completing his undergraduate degree at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, he was commissioned into the U.S. Army Medical Corps. After completing his medical doctor degree at the Uniformed Service University in Bethesda, Maryland, and a general surgery internship at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, he joined the 4th Brigade of the 1st Infantry Division of the U.S. Army in Germany as a flight surgeon. In this capacity he provided care for soldiers and served as a staff officer, managing the unit’s medical section and interacting with other brigade staff officers and NATO medical personnel. He deployed with the division to Tikrit, Iraq.
Dr. Rawie then completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington and joined the staff at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas as a staff radiologist and the deputy department chief. Next, he joined the staff at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Landstuhl, Germany where he eventually served as department chair. The Army then selected him for a two-year sponsored fellowship in Neuroradiology at Michigan Medicine. During the second year of fellowship he acted as an independent neuroradiologist and conducted research in perfusion MR imaging of the head and neck. He also introduced resting state functional MRI. He then completed his Army service obligation at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, where he retired from the Army after achieving the rank of colonel. He is glad to return to his home state, to rejoin the faculty of Michigan Medicine, and to continue his clinical and research interests. He has published peer reviewed articles in national journals and is currently involved in such national societies as the Radiological Society of North America, the American Society for Neuroradiology, and the American Society for Functional Neuroradiology.
