Future Plans

After residency, I hope to complete fellowship training in sports medicine or pain management.  I then hope to be part of a private practice in a metropolitan area in close proximity to a teaching institution, so that I can also teach part time.  At some point in the future, I would also like to devote a few months a year to providing medical care in response to natural disasters, such as the tsunami in Sri Lanka or the recent earthquakes in Haiti and Chile.

Reason for Residency

I was really interested in an unopposed program, where I would get plenty of experience doing procedures.  Also, the type of training lends itself very well to international medicine, which is one of my interests.
