What drew you to UNC?
We do some high-powered research in our department. There are multiple young faculty members who are well-funded and have interesting projects to pursue.
What is your favorite memory with your co-residents?
At the end of our first day in the ORs, all us new CA-1s met up outside the Starbucks to share stories. It was awesome to realize that we had gotten through intern year together and were finally doing what we signed up for!
What has been your favorite rotation thus far?
Probably my time as the surgical ICU bed commander. There are so many facets to critical care, and applying what I’ve learned in the OR to care for critically ill patients in this setting was a huge challenge but extremely gratifying.
