Natalia Painter, M.D.

Residency: University of Michigan

Soccer (playing, coaching, watching - you name it!), trying new ice cream shops (but of course, Blank Slate is one of my favorites!), baking, board games, watching NBA basketball / sports with my husband, visiting parks and hiking (especially with our two Aussies, Pip and Tazo!), and doing all of the above with the newest edition to our family, baby Mila!

Why I chose the Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellowship program at the University of Michigan: 
Having trained at Michigan for residency, I knew firsthand just how awesome the institution and people are - and that I was not ready to leave! I also knew it would be a place that would continue to provide the stimulation, rigor, kindness, support, and that Med/Peds-y environment I was looking for as a PHM fellow intending to become a combined academic hospitalist. Super excited to continue my training with such a wonderful team!
