Personal Statement:
I chose Washington University because of its reputation for producing exceptionally well-trained clinicians and surgeons, the vast academic opportunities with mentors who are leaders in the field, and the sense of community that binds the residents. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my wife and son, playing bass guitar, improv comedy, running/biking/pickup sports, and eating.
