Family Medicine Residency Program
Guthrie/Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre, PA
I chose a career in geriatrics because it has been my favorite population to work with during my medical school and residency training. I am drawn to the wide range of settings in which geriatricians can practice and variety of career paths within the field.
When I interviewed in Rochester, I was extremely impressed by the faculty, everyone I met was very accomplished and passionate about the field of geriatrics. At the same time, they were kind and welcoming people I could envision myself working with. I also liked the city of Rochester, it is the perfect size with plenty to do without being overwhelming!
Within the field of geriatrics, I am particularly interested in primary care and maybe some hospitalist work at the moment, but this is subject to change as I progress through my fellowship year!
Where do you see yourself practicing?
I definitely see myself working in the outpatient setting, and I may choose to practice in other settings as well in some capacity. In terms of geographic location, I am still very much undecided.
What do you hope to learn or accomplish during fellowship?
During my fellowship, I am excited to finally focus on and learn about the population I love, after doing my residency in family medicine! I want to learn to be the best geriatrician I can be!
