1st Year Resident
Medical School: University of Virginia
Hi everyone! I’m very excited that you’re considering UVA for your future residency! I’ve been here for a while now (undergrad, medical school, and now residency) and I can assure you that there’s no better place to train than here. You’re guaranteed to get excellent clinical training while working with some of the smartest and friendliest residents in the country. You also get to learn surgery from amazing attendings who are excited to teach residents. Outside of the OR, UVA has numerous research opportunities with something suitable for everyone’s interests. When I’m not at work, I love to hike and do outdoorsy things which Charlottesville has a lot of. There’s lots of things to do on days off to relax with friends and have fun! Honestly, this city grows on you after a while and truly begins to feel like home. Overall, I believe that UVA will help me grow into the best possible well-rounded academic surgeon I could be which is why I wanted to come here!
