Why Baylor: The key features of the program that stood out to me were the sense of camaraderie amongst the residents, the volume and autonomy in a supportive environment, and the diversity of the city of Houston. I was immediately drawn by opportunity to train at multiple hospitals, gaining exposure to public, private, and VA systems, in-turn being exposed to diverse patients/pathologies and health care infrastructures. I have a passion for research and feel that the faculty have been very supportive and are willing to support any new idea I have. Icing on the cake is by the end of the program your clinical and surgical skills are highly respected nationally.
Outside interests: Eating, dancing, going to see DJs/concerts, cooking, indoor rock climbing, traveling, working out, and watching tv.
