Why I chose Johns Hopkins: I chose the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedics for a myriad of reasons: the great operative experience, the educational philosophy and the high quality and variety of research opportunities and resources. But most of all, I chose Johns Hopkins for the people. From the moment I arrived on my interview day, I felt welcome and that the leadership was invested in my success and development as an orthopaedic surgeon. This department truly does feel like a family, and I'm so grateful to be a part of it!

Why I chose Johns Hopkins: After meeting the residents and faculty that I would be spending the better part of the next five years with, I knew I had found a special place. My co-residents not only inspire me to become a better surgeon but are also people I enjoy spending time with inside and outside of the hospital. I feel lucky to train with them at an institution with a storied medical education history, a sustained record of practice-altering research and a faculty that supports each of our unique professional goals.

Why I chose Johns Hopkins: I chose to come to Johns Hopkins because I was privileged enough to see the program as a sub-intern, which was an amazing experience.

I was looking for a residency program that balances impressive surgical exposure, research and camaraderie, and in Johns Hopkins I was able to find the perfect fit.

Why I chose Johns Hopkins: Johns Hopkins certainly lives up to its rich history as a world leader in clinical care, research and education. Most importantly however, I chose to come to Johns Hopkins because of the people here. The faculty, residents and staff that I met both during my sub-internship rotation and interview are some of the most supportive and collegial individuals I know and are fully dedicated to both resident education and patient care. It certainly makes it the ideal place for residency training.
