Family Medicine (IUH Arnett), PGY 1

St. George's University


Why I chose family medicine: When I was going through my core clinical rotations in medical school, I found parts of every rotation interesting. Family medicine allows me to continue treating a complete spectrum of patients and doesn’t limit me to one subset. I also like the fact that I can build a longstanding relationship with my patients as a family physician. I’d like to be able to treat my patients from the day they’re born to the day I retire!

Why I chose the IU School of Medicine Arnett Family Medicine Residency Program: When I came to Lafayette to interview for the Arnett FM Residency Program, I immediately felt that it was a positive and supportive environment. I had concerns about it being a new residency program, but my questions were answered, and I felt confident ranking the program high on my list. Throughout the interview process and second look event, I felt confident that I would be happy training with the team in Lafayette.

Personal interests/hobbies: I like outdoor activities like running, biking, and hiking. I also enjoy playing/learning music. I play a variety of Indian instruments, such as the harmonium, tabla, and dhol. When I’m home, I like to cook and bake (and eat!).
