Postgraduate Year 2

Medical School

Albany Medical College, Albany, New York


Biography

Hometown: West Palm Beach, FL and Springvale, ME

Undergrad Institution: Boston College

Medical School: Albany Medical College

Other degrees/information about them: I was a philosophy and English double major before matriculating to law school.  I realized I had no passion for a career in law and left law school during my second semester.  I completed the necessary science courses and applied to medical school hoping to find a profession that allowed me to work both with my hands and my intellect in a way that made a tangible difference for others.  I am happy to have found that with this surgery program.

Future plans: I have very different surgical interests, transplant surgery and rural general surgery, each of which will influence my future plans differently.

Why UMASS?: I couples matched here with my wife who is a pediatrics resident at Brown. I ranked UMass highly due to my positive experience on my interview day, the busy liver transplant program, minimal traffic, proximity to nature, and the care the program director/leadership has for surgical residents. 

Favorite thing to do in Worcester: Hiking, paddle boarding, visiting breweries, and outdoor dining with my wife and our black lab.
