Hometown: Allentown, Pennsylvania
Why I chose Johns Hopkins: "I think one of the best things about Johns Hopkins is the opportunities, whether it be incredible breadth of clinical pathology, research in anything you can dream up, opportunities to get involved with cutting edge engineering or the ability to participate in public health on both the global and local scale. The resources available to a resident at Johns Hopkins are endless. Not only is it exciting to look at the people paving the way for the future of medicine and orthopaedics, it is also incredibly inspiring to think about the history of Hopkins. Osler, Halsted, Welch, Kelly, Blalock, Cushing — the founders of modern medicine and surgery have all walked the same halls we are privileged to walk every day and every time I walk through the Dome I can't help but feel inspired. I think this is one of the really powerful things about training at Johns Hopkins."
