Gregory Miller, MD
Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellow, Class of 2021
Residency: Washington University in St. Louis
Medical School: University of Missouri-Kansas City
“As a St. Louis native who completed residency at Washington University, choosing St. Louis Children’s Hospital for fellowship was an easy choice. I had the advantage of working with previous fellows for the last three years. All of them had great things to say about the program and several stayed on as faculty, demonstrating the strength of the program and the department. The faculty are very dedicated to fellow development and are enjoyable to work with. The didactics at St. Louis Children’s is already strong, and future classes can look forward to more components being added by the education faculty, as early as this year. In addition to the clinical and educational strength, staying with Washington University offered me the opportunity to continue pediatric anesthesiology research projects I started during residency. For those interested in research, Washington University offers plenty of opportunities. For those focused on other aspects of fellowship opportunities, St. Louis Children’s offers academic roles in education, QI, leadership, and subspecialty training.
As a mid-sized city, there are plenty of activities to occupy your free time in St. Louis. Sports are taken very seriously here. For those who like outdoor activities, there are several bike trails (both road and gravel), plenty of hiking spots, and the hospital overlooks Forest Park. Breweries and outdoor restaurants are everywhere, especially in the Central West End surrounding the hospital. For those with families, my fiancée and I have taken advantage of the affordable cost of living and purchased a house with a large backyard (for the dog). No matter what hobbies you enjoy, St. Louis has you covered.”
