Miranda Lindburg, MD

Hometown: Sandy, UT

Personal Statement: As a medical student at Wash U, I saw the incredible breadth and depth of training here, and when choosing where I would go for residency, I realized that there was no better program, department, and people than at Wash U. I am excited to take advantage of all the clinical and research opportunities here, and am interested in all aspects of otolaryngology. Outside of medicine, I enjoy skiing, reading, cooking, trying new restaurants, and exploring all that St. Louis has to offer.
