Why Minnesota: My surgery rotation during medical school convinced me to apply to general surgery, and the faculty and residents were extremely supportive as I found my passion in the OR. The U’s General Surgery residency program fosters a friendly, encouraging environment in which I am excited to continue my training. Also, Minneapolis is one of my favorite cities to live in: four seasons, lots of lakes, tons of places to walk or bike, and of course the beautiful snow!
