I chose Middlesex because the program had everything I was looking for: an unopposed program offering the training to practice full spectrum family medicine in a diverse community. I believe that the program will provide me with plenty of opportunities to learn various procedures and become a very proficient physician over the course of four years. I was also drawn to the program’s Behavioral Health curriculum, which I feel is an invaluable resource for a family physician. It is an added bonus that there is plenty to do in Middletown and it is within driving distance of New Haven, Hartford, NYC, and Boston.

About my track and future goals…

Middlesex is incredibly supportive and flexible in helping us meet our goals. I would like to pursue a Behavioral Health track. I am also looking forward to some hands on procedural training in both inpatient and outpatient settings since I have an interest in Sports Medicine and Emergency Medicine.

When I’m not on call I’m…

Visiting friends and family in NYC (which is less than 2 hours away), exploring the nearby hiking trails and historic sites such as Wadsworth falls. During the week I’ll try to pop in to the nearby gyms for fitness classes or go jogging. There are also plenty of restaurants, bakeries and cafes to choose from. I’m looking forward to spending some time on the water as well, whether it be the Connecticut River or beaches near Old Saybrook.

A fun fact or two about me…

I am always ready to go on an adventure, whether it be hiking to the top of a mountain or exploring a concrete jungle. I’ve been skydiving in Long Island and hiked to the top of Mount Washington. I also enjoy group workout classes and hope to become a certified instructor in the near future.
