Interests/Hobbies: Being from Minnesota, I enjoy being outside. Camping (even in winter), canoeing, and hiking are always a blast. I also enjoy sports, I love to golf and enjoy watching baskeet ball, football and baseball (go Twins!) I also love to travel, the more adventurous the better.
Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: I know it's over used and somewhat clichÃ© but it really comes down to the people you want to work with. It was apparent from my interview day that the program here at CCHS is really a Med-Peds family, best examplified by our wonderful program director, Dr. Friedland. The people here have been so accommodating, helpful and friendly, it was (and is still) really impressive. Additionally, there are a wide array of opportunities to become involved in leadership training, interprofessional work, quality and patient safety. During my intervew, it was apparent that CCHS is committed to not only providing excellent patient care, but will offer residents many opportunities to get involved in the larger discussion of how we can make health care safer, more efficient, and more cost-effective. Lastly, I couples matched and my wife (OB/Gyn) and we were looking for excellent training in a new location, we are so happy we found CCHS!
