Why did you choose UCLA for residency?
The people! After leaving the interview day, I could tell that the faculty, residents, and whole ED staff just enjoyed hanging out with each other. Plus the 50/50 split & flexible elective time really allows you to really turn your residency training into whatever you want!
What are your areas of interest within EM or future career plans?
Education and data informatics. I'd love to be able to figure out more ways to integrate technology into the emergency setting.
Are you involved in any research or national EM committees etc? If so, what?
Big data analysis in trauma.
What is your favorite place to visit/thing(s) to do in/memory from living in LA?
Eating at as many taco stands as possible
