Medical School: Midwestern University, Chicago, IL
Internship: University of Chicago
Why did you choose the Univ. of Chicago for your residency training?
I am originally from Chicago and so I was drawn to programs that were in Chicago. I chose U of C because it not only offered great experience in terms of breadth and acuity of cases but it was also apparent that the residents were very close and had good relationships with the attendings and other specialties.
Why did you choose Anesthesiology? The thing I like most about Anesthesia is the need to think and act quickly when it comes to taking care of patients. You have only a limited amount of time to recognize a problem, develop a differential, and do something about it. It forces you to think critically and always have a plan B.
Where do you live in Chicago (area of the city) and if you like that area, why?
West Loop- it is close to work but also a great place for restaurants and night life. Also they have lots of dog parks which is great for my pup!
