Summary

Hometown: New Franken, Wisconsin
Undergrad: Biological Sciences at Michigan Technological University
Medical Interests: General Surgery, Rural Surgery
Hobbies/Interests: Anything outdoors, including mountain biking, downhill skiing, cycling, canoeing, camping, SCUBA diving
Why I chose Minnesota: I was interested in matching at a residency that offered rural surgery training. The University of Minnesota’s rural surgery training track has a great balance of exposure to complex cases seen only at academic training centers during the first three years followed by two years of an immersive rural experience in northern Minnesota. The twin cities are a great place to live with great food, access to outdoor activities, and affordable living.
