PGY5 Resident

MD: University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

Hometown: Maryland

Personal Statement: I chose WashU for residency because of its immense depth in all aspects of Otolaryngology. In particular, I was attracted to the strong clinical training and the countless research opportunities offered through the department. I hope to utilize the resources offered at WashU to build a successful foundation as an academic otolaryngologist. Outside of medicine, I enjoy playing basketball, watching movies, reading literary fiction, weight lifting, and running.
