Why I’m a resident

I went into emergency medicine for chaos and public health, but at Region’s, I found so much more than that. We have diversity in thought and patients, high acuity, great resources, and wonderful people. I am humbled by the amount of love and support from my attendings, co-residents, and nurses – in both great and challenging cases. Our fabulous nurses, techs, and social workers make patient-centered care a daily standard. With a culture that fosters collaboration, wellness, and resilience, I am tremendously grateful to be part of the Region’s residency program.

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.
