“Choosing Mass General Brigham for my residency has to be one of the easiest decisions I’ve made so far in my medical career. From day one, it was clear to me that this is a program committed to training great surgeons, compassionate physicians and tireless advocates for our patients. I was inspired by the groundbreaking research and dedication to evidence-based medicine that is at the core of every patient interaction here. It’s been thrilling to not just learn the guidelines, but to implement them next to the people that wrote them.
I knew I wanted a residency program that was focused on teaching, and that expectation has been surpassed with the exponential daily growth I’ve experienced. It’s been a pleasure to continuously learn from our incredible attendings, fellows, nurses, PA’s, and midwives. Most importantly, I’m continuously inspired by the talent, passion, and generosity of my co-residents. My classmates are 10 people that I know I can call for at any moment for any reason and they will be there. And for all of that, I feel so incredibly fortunate."
