Why Michigan Surgery

"I chose to train at Michigan Surgery because among the other top tier programs, Michigan set itself apart for me with its excellent case mix variety, unique and unparalleled research opportunities, and the phenomenal group of people that comprise the residency from the faculty to its current trainees, APPs, and program administrators."

Life in Ann Arbor

"Ann Arbor is a great place to live, and it's easy to live here, unlike many larger cities. It has a lot to offer for everybody from fun tailgates during football season to great bars, coffee shops, and restaurants. The town and university also pull in a lot of fun events including festivals, concerts, etc."


"In my spare time I enjoy training for triathlons/marathons, cooking, hunting/fishing, working on my golf game, and hanging out with co-residents outside the hospital."
