Name: Anthony Williams, MD
Hometown: Arlington, TX
Undergraduate: BS in Chemical Engineering from University of Oklahoma
Hobbies: Working out, writing & reading sci-fi & fantasy, binge-watching Netflix, and HBO
Languages I speak: English (and that's questionable at times)
Furthest I've traveled from home: Austria
Favorite activity in the Twin Cities: Hipster spotting & going to places with great bourbon lists. I look forward to expanding this list significantly after completing residency.
Why I chose this specialty: I am an Internal Medicine & Pediatrics physician who gets to work with both adults and children. I love the flexibility and breadth of clinical exposure inherent in this specialty. I love helping children get healthy again and listening to the interesting stories of adults.
Why Medicine: It is the perfect blend of dynamic problem solving, empathy, teamwork, and applied science. My training at the University of Minnesota (medical school & residency) has been fantastic. So much, in fact, that I continue to brave Minnesota winters even though each year for the last nine years I've promised myself it will be my last.
