What drew you to WashU?

I was initially drawn to WashU because of the very strong clinical training and research opportunities here. I was also pleasantly surprised by the down-to-earth and laid back personalities of the residents and the delicious food around the city.

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

The food scene in St. Louis has been amazing! I’ve enjoyed trying various places by having food delivered to the hospital on call days or getting take out and eating with my co-interns at Forest Park.
