Austin Nichols, M.D.

Class of 2027


Hi everyone! My name is Austin, I grew up in Michigan and moved to Chicago for college. After graduation, I worked in Chicago Public Schools then decided to pursue a master's degree, and ultimately made my way back to the Midwest for medical school and now residency. I was drawn to the University of Michigan because of its rich academic opportunities, incredibly supportive residents and faculty, and genuine commitment to diversity. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, playing and watching sports with my kids, traveling, and exercising at the gym.
