Why I chose general surgery as a career: General surgery offered a mix of clinic, procedures, and taking care of critically ill patients.
Why I chose the IU School of Medicine General Surgery Residency Program: The people – at the pre-interview dinner, I got a sense of how close and hard working the residents were. It really seemed like a family. IU also offered a balance of the complexity of care in a university program, with the breadth of cases and volume of a community hospital.
