Why I chose Johns Hopkins: "I chose Hopkins because of the people — specifically the residents, faculty, leadership and support staff. When I did my subinternship here, it took me very little time to realize that the program had a knack for matching not only academically outstanding residents, but ones that were hardworking, humble and down-to-earth. Furthermore, they sincerely cared about one another’s success and well-being. The faculty I interacted with were all very approachable and eager to teach. As for our leadership, I dare to say that it is rivaled by no other orthopaedic department in the country — I have found them to be kind, generous and gentle, and see them consistently go the extra mile to provide us with the best possible environment to train in. Lastly, the caliber of Hopkins is such that I knew I would receive training of the highest order and be afforded opportunities that few other places in this world can match."

Why I chose Johns Hopkins: "I think one of the best things about 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 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 Hopkins."

Why I chose Johns Hopkins: "Hopkins has always been at the forefront of research and patient care, and there is a collective approach to advancing the medical field. Being surrounded by dedicated attendings and co-residents creates a supportive environment where I can continuously gain both knowledge and operating skills. My co-residents have become my family, and I am grateful to be able to work and learn every day from and alongside these inspiring physicians."

Medical School: SUNY Downstate Medical Center
Undergraduate School: City University of New York School of Medicine
Hometown: Staten Island, New York
Why I chose Johns Hopkins: "I could not be happier to be training at Johns Hopkins. After spending a year with the department as the Poggi Pediatric Orthopaedic Research Fellow, I knew that I would not want to train anywhere but here. I am able to surround myself with a diverse patient population, an excellent educational experience and innovative research opportunities. Daily, I am challenged to excel by my peers and supported by my mentors. Putting aside the large name and its history, what really made me want to stay here is the people and the strong sense of family."

Medical School: Georgetown University
Undergraduate School: University of Wisconsin
Hometown: Racine, Wisconsin
Why I Chose Hopkins: "As a subintern, I came to understand many of the unique characteristics of Hopkins that made me want to do my residency training here. The early exposure to rare pathology that most residents will only read about was a huge part of the appeal, and I felt that all of the subspecialty experiences were very strong. The support for research and resident education from the faculty was impressive, and another component of my choice to come here. Finally, the city of Baltimore offers affordable housing, limitless things to do and great access to the entire East Coast. "
