Why did I choose Middlesex?

Middlesex provides me with a perfect mixture of proximity to home, family, and friends, as well as the opportunity to choose a track of excellence that will lead me down my desired career path without the need for fellowship training. Also, on my interview day, it was clear that the culture of Middlesex was the most welcoming and friendly that I had encountered. On residency interviews, a clear choice often emerges, and Middlesex was that choice for me.

About my track and future goals…

I am passionate about transforming geriatric care, practicing preventive medicine, and financial independence. For most people, the greatest source of stress and anxiety is how to pay their bills. In the rat race of jobs and careers directed at funding families and lifestyles, people often neglect their physical and mental health. Eventually, they find themselves in their “golden years” with end stage diseases and no “gold” to show for their lifetime toiling away at their jobs. When their body does fail them eventually, they often find themselves stuck in a dreadful system of nursing facilities. My goal is to live a better life, and to help others do the same. With a set of habits centered around building financial independence and physical fitness, people will on average require less end-of-life support. Coupling healthier people with a geriatric health system focused on maintaining patient autonomy and dignity can provide the golden years people hope for.

When I’m not on call I’m…

Sleeping, exercising, staying connected with friends and family, and reading about medicine and personal finance.

A fun fact or two about me…

I first knew I wanted to be a physician in eighth grade, when I had surgery on my knee that allowed me to run cross country and track throughout high school.
