Why I’m a resident

I chose emergency medicine because it provides the awesome opportunity of being able to care for individuals presenting with a wide breadth of medical concerns and coming from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. It is a field that truly feels as though you can always learn something new or interesting, even when managing a medical condition or performing a procedure that you perhaps have seen/performed several times in the past. Being a part of such a dynamic, diverse, and fast-paced field can be somewhat daunting at times, however, the reward of being able to help or provide comfort to patients and their families when they are at their most vulnerable point is a truly rewarding experience. As I continue to develop my own clinical practice, I am so thankful be part of a residency program that not only provides high-quality learning, but also surrounds you with an incredibly supportive team that I feel always has my back!

Living in the Twin Cities

The Twin Cities is a terrific place to live. Not only is it absolutely beautiful in the North Star State, you can actually afford to live, work, and play here. You’ll find that Minnesota is one of the best states for health care in the nation. And yes, “Minnesota Nice” is a real thing. These reasons make Minnesota one of the best states to learn and practice medicine.
