Alan Schurle, M.D. - Chief Resident

Medical School:  University of Chicago
Internship:  University of Chicago

Why did you choose the Univ. of Chicago for your residency training?
Though there are many reasons from incredible institutional support to delicious cornbread in the basement cafeteria, the single most compelling factor for me was how genuinely happy both faculty and residents seemed to be. So far it’s proven true!

Favorite thing to do in Chicago?
My favorite things to do in Chicago are basically anything in a park—from jogging on a deserted lake shore path in the dead of winter to free summer concerts, I enjoy getting out into the vast green spaces of the city.

Favorite weekend trips in the area?
Any of the lovely state parks in Illinois like Starved Rock or in Indiana like the Dunes. Also the Lemon Lake County Park in Crown Point, Indiana has a world famous disc golf course which is an amazing spot to play a round!
