What drew you to WashU?

My fiancée was an MS2 studying in St. Louis when I was applying for residency, which was my primary motivation for matching here. However, I’ve been blown away by the kind and intelligent faculty, awesome co-residents, diverse pathology, and career advancement opportunities especially for those who are fellowship bound!

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

My favorite part is definitely Forest Park. There’s so much to do – enjoy the zoo, catch a production at the Muny, stroll through the art/history/science museum, play golf, have a picnic on art hill or just go for a quick run through the miles of trails (my absolute favorite).
