MD, University of Minnesota Medical School, 2019


Elena has lived in many places as an Air Force brat but likes to call Minnesota home. She attended the University of Minnesota Duluth and Twin Cities campuses for her undergraduate and medical studies and decided to keep the trend going by staying at UMN for residency! Elena chose UMN for its amazing faculty and co-residents, historically strong AP and CP training, multiple practice sites providing diverse specimen populations, and its supreme location in beautiful Minneapolis. In her free time, she enjoys exploring Minnesota’s many state parks and picturesque North Shore, visiting family and playing with her two Rat Terriers, or relaxing at home with Netflix.
