Why Iowa

The culture of the city as a whole has permeated the program. In Iowa, being kind and approachable is a way of life. This program has a longstanding reputation for providing exceptional clinical training with clear emphasis on resident education and research. I was also impressed by the program's strong leadership and genuine concern for the residents' well-being. Geographically, after living here for almost a year now, I can confidently say that Iowa City has the best of both worlds: being a small town that meets city life in unique and inviting ways. In addition, it is a great place to raise a family with a low cost of living.

Professional/Research Interests

Career goals: Mainly interested in teaching and being part of an academic institution. As a subspecialty, I am considering a neuromuscular fellowship, but will keep an open mind.

Research interests: Quality improvement, neurodegenerative diseases, neuroimmunology
