Why I’m a resident

I have always been someone that loves chaos and has the ability to stay calm in even the most stressful moments, which really helped me in deciding that emergency medicine was a good fit for me. I also enjoy the range of medicine I get to practice and how much research and room for improvement there always is. Lastly, I love knowing that the emergency department is a safe place for everyone, no matter their backstory.

I have never felt such an overwhelming feeling of support and camaraderie as I do in this residency. At any given moment, I have 32 people I can call or text at all hours if I need to talk (and that’s not taking into consideration the 20+ attendings I can reach out to at any time as well). I cannot imagine training anywhere other than Regions and I am so grateful I get to call this place home.

These reasons make Minnesota one of the best states to learn and practice medicine.
