Why did I choose Middlesex
I was initially interested in Middlesex because of its four-year, community-based approach to training. It was exciting to find a program that provides the full breadth of Family Medicine while also allowing residents to delve deeper into specific interests. My interview day really sealed the deal as well. Everyone I talked to made me feel welcome and comfortable and they were obviously passionate about what they were doing. I knew that with their support I could grow into the physician I aspire to become.
About my track and future goals…
My goal is to provide broad-spectrum care to underserved populations in a community health setting. I would like to incorporate lifestyle medicine and behavioral health to help my patients maximize their well-being, which makes integrative medicine and behavioral health tracks appealing.
When I’m not on call I’m…
Entertaining good company with bad jokes, enjoying a trip that I planned at the last minute, or engrossed in a good book.
A fun fact or two about me…
I have a number of unfortunate traveling mishaps. I once got lost in the business district of Amsterdam, during a thunderstorm, at night. I also injured myself playing tag in Machu Picchu (the town, not the ruins).
