Undergraduate: Davidson College
Medical School: University of Chicago

Michael is a Minnesota native who went to Davidson for college, studying biology and (mostly) ultimate frisbee. After working in Charlotte for a year Michael went to the University of Chicago for medical school. He was torn between urology and medicine and spent 2 years in urology residency at the Cleveland Clinic before deciding to follow his heart and switch to medicine. Michael loves playing sports (basketball, golf, squash), being outdoors, and spending time with his wife Rachel and dog Maisie. He is thrilled to have the chance to train at UNC!
