Chief Residents

Siobahn Evans, M.D.

Siobahn Evans, MD

College: University of New Hampshire

Medical School: University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas, 2018

Siobahn grew up in Sandown, New Hampshire, a small town 50 minutes north of Boston. She attended the University of New Hampshire where she majored in Biology. Following graduation, she spent two years researching the anti-inflammatory effects of mechanotransduction in mesenchymal stem cells and how it can be applied to traumatic brain injury in Houston, Texas.  She then attended medical school at UT Southwestern in Dallas, Texas.  Siobahn was drawn to U of R due to the strong sense of collegiality, mentorship, and Rochester specifically for it's wonderful mix of city and rural experiences.  Over the course of her time here she was impressed by the program's emphasis on teaching, resident wellness, and overall support.  She plans to pursue a career in either hospital medicine or primary care.  In her free time, Siobahn enjoys reading, horseback riding, and spending time with her husband, Kyle, and their son, Evander along with their dog, cat, and many fish.

Niagara Falls, NY

College: SUNY Binghamton

Medical School: Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, 2018

Kate grew up just minutes from Niagara Falls, NY before heading to college at SUNY Binghamton. At Binghamton University she majored in Biology with a minor in Anthropology, where her favorite course was "Buried Cities and Lost Tribes." During her high school and college summers she worked evenings at an assisted living facility, where her passion for caring for older adults blossomed (as well as her passion for playing board games). She then completed medical school in Scranton, PA at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine before looping back toward Western New York for residency in Rochester as an IM primary care resident. Kate loves the Internal Medicine Residency Program at URMC for the incredible people, emphasis on mentorship and teaching, and block scheduling (excellent for wellness). She plans to pursue a fellowship in Geriatrics before enjoying the breadth of general medicine as a primary care physician. During her free time, you will find Kate playing board games, walking with her husband and their dog named Atlas, baking with locally sourced ingredients, and reading.

Robert Reynolds, M.D., MPH

Robert Reynolds, MD

College: Syracuse University

Medical School: SUNY Upstate Medical University, 2018

Bobby grew up in Albany, New York. He went to Syracuse University for undergrad and studied Biochemistry as well as Political Science. His interest in healthcare policy landed him at the SUNY Albany School of Public Health where he obtained an M.P.H. and worked on Medicaid waivers for OPWDD. He returned to Syracuse for medical school at Upstate Medical University, and then finally ended his migration down the New York State Thruway at URMC for residency, where he plans to stay as faculty. Bobby initially chose URMC after his interview day blew him away. Everyone felt so happy here, and there was an undoubted focus on resident education and wellness. Bobby's career plan is to be a teaching Hospitalist, with academic interests in medical education, POCUS, and clinical reasoning. Outside of the hospital, you'll likely find him on local trails with his fiancée Karri and their two dogs: Ranger and Ezra. He has a passion for bird-watching, and he enjoys hiking, golf, weight training, the Adirondacks, and rooting for the NY Yankees and Giants!

Edward Shanley, DO

College: SUNY Geneseo

Medical School:  New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine, 2018

Eddie grew up in Massapequa on Long Island, New York before getting his first dose of upstate New York when he attended undergraduate at SUNY Geneseo. While at Geneseo, he studied Biology and minored in Psychology and participated as a member of the men's varsity soccer team. After college, he worked for two years as a certified nursing assistant in both a local nursing home and at an inpatient psychiatry unit. This is where his compassion for patient care in medicine and, in particular, end of life care began. He then completed medical school at NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine where he met his wife Jenn, the current Pediatrics Chief Resident. The love that had grown for western New York during college was intensified when he joined the Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Rochester. Eddie fell in the love with the University of Rochester IM program due to its team focus, wonderful co-residents, excellent faculty, and incredible learning. He plans to pursue a career in Palliative Care medicine after completing his Chief Resident year. In his free time, Eddie enjoys spending time with his wife and his son Owen, hiking, going on road trips, and playing soccer and volleyball.
