University of Rochester Internal Medicine Residency Program
SUNY Buffalo School of Medicine
Caring for our aging population is a passion and a privilege that offers personal and career satisfaction.
The leadership, culture, and mentors at URMC have guided and shaped me as a young physician, needless to say I didn't have a second thought about going somewhere else
I'm dedicated to improving the accessibility and ease of primary care in rural communities with a focus on our elderly
Where do you see yourself practicing?
I'm planning on starting an independent practice in my home town of Eden, NY
What do you hope to learn or accomplish during fellowship?
Increase my knowledge in Geriatric medicine by gaining experience across multiple areas including hospital discharges, skilled nursing facilities, short term rehab, long term care, Geriatric Psych, Geriatric Onc, Geriatric Urology. Confidence and competence in these areas is essential for a primary care physician in order to prevent unneeded hospitalizations and readmissions which can be detrimental to older adults struggling to maintain strength and independence as they age.
