Eizyk FunWhy did I choose Middlesex?

I was sold on the camaraderie I sensed among the residents and the program’s “high tech, high touch” approach to training and patient care. Without having had the opportunity during interview season to visit in person, finding out that Middlesex received a national award for fostering a supportive environment for medical education and for delivering compassionate patient care helped assure me that this was a program I could trust my heart to for the next few years of training. I also loved how the program had a designated Palliative Medicine track and attracted residents from around the world who brought with them a wide array of interests and experiences.

About my track and future goals…

Although I gravitate toward palliative medicine, I am also drawn to medical humanities, global health, and integrative pain management. I love working with Spanish-speaking patients as well. My hope is to find a blend of inpatient, outpatient, and educational work that nurtures and sustains those interests.

When I’m not on call I’m…

Recharging by spending time outdoors, catching up with family and friends, swimming, or tending to my plants and small garden.

A fun fact or two about me…

I used to work as an ESL teacher abroad and spent close to 4 years teaching preschoolers to grandparents "full-spectrum English."
