Why I chose EVMS:  The faculty, residents and the supporting staff are friendly, kind, polite and eager to teach and make you a part of the treating team. It is affiliated with both International and Prehospital emergency medicine, which are sub-specialties most interested to me. That plus opportunities to train at both level 1 adult and pediatric academic hospitals, Community and Rural hospitals made this program stand out far more than others that I visited along my interview trail. I am happy to have landed here.

Hobbies & Interests: camping, traveling and experiencing world cultures
