Why did you choose UA EM?

I did a rotation at UA and was blown away by the residents and faculty. The teaching was exceptional and there’s tons of pathology to learn from. There was a real sense of camaraderie throughout the department and the residents were supportive, fun, and genuinely normal. I knew this would be a great place to train, plus it’s got great weather, too!

What's your ideal vacation?

It depends. I enjoy traveling to new places and trying all the food, but relaxing vacations/staycations are underrated and I’d never say no to some lounging by the beach.

What are your non-medical goals during residency?

Stay active (keep my belly in check), learn Spanish, find the best tacos and brews in Tucson.
