Why Baylor: Baylor was an easy choice for residency; the autonomy here is unparalleled. I knew that by matching Baylor, I would be seeing patients and making medical decisions from the start, that I would be in the operating room far earlier than any other program, and with five different hospitals plus a private clinic I would I see a plethora of pathology. From a surgical standpoint, Baylor boasts of impressive surgical numbers for residents, which is made possible by the surgical curriculum with wet lab experience and early OR exposure, and augmented by the incredible teaching by faculty. Baylor truly is a unique program.
Outside Interests: Fly fishing, skiing, hiking.
