Why did you apply for the Psychiatry Residency in Merrillville?
I wanted to work in a community that didn’t have a lot of psychiatrists already. Most of my interests are in trying to build new systems and create things for others. So, instead of being plugged into a spot where all of that already exists, I really wanted the experience of building that myself. Also, I wanted to be between two sides of my family. I’ve got some in Ohio and some in the Chicago area.
What do you like most about the residency so far?
For me, it’s been the people. I have a lot of faith in Dr. Douglas and others. And my co-residents are really awesome people. We started talking right after we all knew we were going to be in this program. I’d like to think that we’re all friends. I’ve been really enjoying hanging out with them.
