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…

Throughout intern year as I learned and grew, I became much more interested in lifestyle medicine, particularly in the geriatric setting. Going into my PGY-2 year, I envision practicing geriatric medicine in a primary care setting with an emphasis on lifestyle medicine. I also look forward to helping my patients navigate various decisions at the end of their lives in hopes of achieving their individual goals.

When I’m not on call I’m…

Exercising, watching a series on some streaming service, traveling to see old friends, reading about personal finance, and generally trying to not think about work.

A fun fact or two about me…

I plan to become, and in some sense already am, a real estate investor. Feel free to ask me about this, I love teaching what I know about investing as much as I do medicine.
