Why did you apply for the Psychiatry Residency in Merrillville?
Being born and raised in Chicago, I’m very attached to the Midwest and I like the academic aspects of the city. But I think being in a more rural area exposes you to the bigger problems, problems that are a little more progressed because of the lack of psychiatrists in the area. I’d like to address those needs. Also, I really like Indiana University. Being affiliated with it is particularly important to me.
What do you like most about the residency so far?
It’s gone by been really quick and it’s still pretty early, but everyone’s been very nice to us. We’ve gotten chances to see a few places—the family medicine clinic, county jail, as examples—and we’ve just started seeing patients. I’m excited.
