Brendan grew up in the heart of central North Carolina with plenty of warmth, humidity, and sunshine. During his high school and college years, Brendan worked multiple jobs in the healthcare profession including as an EMT, medical scribe, EKG technician, and CNA. He attended Anderson University, a small but vibrant liberal arts college in upstate South Carolina where he graduated with a major in Biology and minor in chemistry. He received his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine at Kansas City University in Kansas City, Missouri. Brendan chose the University of Rochester’s Internal Medicine Residency due to its size, individualized attention, robust evaluation and feedback system, block scheduling, balance between service and education, as well as the incredible people. Brendan has a strong interest in the care of the hospitalized patient, particularly during the nighttime hours. He plans to pursue a career in academic hospital medicine and nocturnist work. In addition to his interest in medicine, Brendan and his partner, Bennett Wilson D.O. (Anatomic/Clinical Pathology, also at the University of Rochester), enjoy cooking, travel (particularly cruises), bike rides, trying new restaurants, and working on their home in Rochester's 19th Ward.
