UNIVERSITY TRACK RESIDENT
Hi! My name is Aimee, and I’m from “The Great Lakes State”, Michigan! I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan before attending Grand Valley State University for my undergraduate degree. At Grand Valley, I had the privilege to play NCAA Division II lacrosse and major in biomedical science with a minor in Spanish. I moved to the east side of the state outside of Detroit to attend medical school at Oakland University. During my third year of medical school, I found myself enjoying just about every one of my rotations and felt a bit lost on choosing a medical specialty. However, after some soul searching and some fantastic Family Medicine mentors, I realized how much I value continuity of care, patient education, and health equity. I wanted to spend time getting to know my patients and potentially even treat their children or their parents.
When considering residency programs, I sought out programs with full-spectrum family medicine training that were active members of their communities and active in academia. The only time I have ever been to North Carolina was very briefly on a trip with my college lacrosse team. At that time, I had no idea that I would fall in love with the UNC Family Medicine Residency Program, the research triangle area, and all that the great state of North Carolina has to offer. Ultimately, seeing the way that the residents, faculty, and support staff were like a family confirmed that this program was for me. My clinical interests include women’s health, sport’s medicine, and geriatrics.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy running, watching sports, watching movies, cooking, spending time with my family/friends, and boating on lakes in northern Michigan. My partner, Ben, and I are big University of Michigan football fans–Go Blue! I look forward to meeting you sometime soon!
