Why Yale? I have always loved working with kids and the pathophysiology of the pediatric diseases captured my interest during medical school. I love being able to see kids grow and develop over time. There are so many opportunities to be silly while also making an incredible impact on a patient's life. Plus everyone in the pediatrics community is incredibly welcoming and friendly!
Favorite Apizza: I have to admit I had never been to New Haven prior to my interview day, so I am still in the process of trying them all before I can make a decision!
How do you stay busy outside the hospital? Hiking with my dog, exploring the outdoors, fantasy football with my family, finding new restaurants to enjoy
