Why did you choose UA EM?

I went to medical school just up north at the UA Phoenix, so I was familiar with the program and the reputation it has in the region. I love that the shifts are 9 hours, that each month is a mix of Main Campus, South Campus and Peds shifts. The people I met on my interview day seemed very relaxed, very competent and genuinely normal.

Sunshine! Seriously though after doing a handful of east coast interviews in the winter sunshine became more and more of a factor.

What's your ideal vacation?

Going on an adventure somewhere with people I care about. Beach, city, or mountains don't matter as much as the people I'm going with. But I do love to just float at the beach…

What are your non-medical goals during residency?

Learn more Spanish, lock down a salsa recipe, stay married, explore Tucson and southern Arizona.
