Why did you choose the Univ. of Chicago for your residency training?
When I interviewed, I could instantly tell that University of Chicago had a strong passion and commitment to resident education. The residents seem to truly enjoy their time there and seemed very well rounded both as clinicians and individuals.

Why did you choose Anesthesiology?
I wasn't exposed to Anesthesiology until well into my third year of medical school. I loved that you had to constantly apply your knowledge to solve real-time problems and would receive instant feedback for your actions. This field is the perfect blend of physiology, pharmacology, and hands-on patient care.

Where do you live in Chicago (area of the city) and if you like that area, why?
I live in Hyde Park and I love it. I walk to work and not dealing with traffic is a great relief. I'm a short walk to the lake, some great restaurants, and can easily take an Uber to go downtown.
