Biography and Education
Why did you choose the University of Kentucky?
As a lifelong Kentuckian, UK has always been seen as the healthcare capital of the state. I ultimately chose to train at UK because I believe it has all the resources to allow me to achieve my goals with the bonus of getting to live in Lexington. I have a huge interest in Sports Medicine as well, and given the sports track and associated sports medicine fellowship, choosing UK was a no brainer.
What do you like about your program?
I believe the highlight of the program is the residents. We all genuinely enjoy being around each other and that is crucial in a residency program. I also like the ability to train in both an academic based hospital such as Chandler Hospital, as well as a smaller community hospital in Good Samaritan. I think it gives us a good mix of experiences.
What are your hobbies?
