Arianna Montes de Oca, MD

Resident, Class of 2026

Arianna Montes de Oca grew up in Caracas-Venezuela and went to MD school in Colombia. She joined the WashU anesthesiology family in 2019 to work in telemedicine research and is now halfway through her intern year. She has enjoyed the exposure to different specialties and teams this year and has definitely learned a lot in the process, but she can’t wait to start her CA-1 year!

She lives with her husband (Nimrod) and beautiful dog (Lara), but her family lives abroad, so she doesn’t miss a chance to travel and visit them. She loves working out, especially boxing and running in some of the beautiful parks this city has to offer…but it is not all exercise, she also likes drinking wine and beer, as well as eating out. She says life is all about balance!
