Why did you choose UCLA for residency?
The people, the faculty and current residents, are absolutely phenomenal. The opportunities to pursue any interests within or outside of medicine are endless. The program feels like home.
What else do you do in your free time? What hobbies do you have?
Playing and watching basketball, running, astronomy, Smash Brothers on N64, Bhangra, playing the harmonium/tabla, and keeping up with Game of Thrones and Suits.
What are your areas of interest within EM or future career plans?
I am interested in hospital administration with a particular focus on controlling rising costs of providing high quality care while integrating ED access for the underserved. I also have interests in Aerospace Medicine and medical education.
