Why I chose this program/Grand Rapids for my training
I chose Grand Rapids because it was the best program I interviewed at, my wife and I love West Michigan! I was very impressed with the strong presence that Med-Peds residents have on the categorical sides. I wanted to be at a program with separate Peds and Medicine clinics, and there are also several clinics in the area with Med-Peds physicians. Grand Rapids does a great job of training Med-Peds physicians who then continue to train and mentor residents. My wife grew up 30 minutes from Grand Rapids and we really wanted to end up here for Residency. Its a great city with lots of fun activities and we are so excited to live here!
Hobbies/what I do outside of work.
My wife and I love being outdoors. We especially enjoy hiking on trails and going to the beach. During medical school I picked up the sport of triathlon. I have done two full distance Ironman races and several shorter races as well
I am very interested in outpatient medicine
