  • Fun Fact About You:

    I was born in the same Labor and Delivery room I later delivered a baby in as a medical student.

    Video game developer.

    The opportunities to learn procedures hands-on from early in our training.

    The opportunity to work with extensively experienced proceduralists.

  • What is one thing you want a prospective fellow to know about our program?

    This program focuses on the fellows, providing an environment that fosters focused learning, eliminating any unnecessary or non-learning experiences.
