What drew you to WashU?

I was drawn to WashU during interview season because it is one of the premier residency programs in the Midwest. It has a reputation for exposing residents to a broad breadth of disease clinically and preparing the residents in the program to succeed in any specialty that they choose. It also serves an at-risk patient population as a large safety net hospital for the region. But most importantly, the residents genuinely seemed to enjoy each other’s company and working together!

What is your favorite part about living in St. Louis?

I love that St. Louis has a vibrant culinary and beer culture for a mid-sized city!
