“What stood out to me about Washington University is the faculty’s dedication to quality improvement, excellence, and lifelong learning. The program is centered around the fellows’ education and also provides support and mentorship to guide us to our desired career paths.
My academic interests include regional, cardiac, and ambulatory anesthesia. Doing different types of cases every day excites me, and this fellowship gives me that variety. Additionally, the welcoming atmosphere and the mutual respect amongst the staff of St. Louis Children’s Hospital is very reflective of the Midwest which I have come to love.
Saint Louis has a lot to offer when it comes to date nights, live music events, dog parks, and happy hours with the fellows. The highlights of my year so far are taking the train downtown to Cardinals games, going dancing at the Grove, scootering to the zoo, and canoeing in the middle of Forest Park. Each neighborhood in Saint Louis has its own vibe, and there is something here for everyone.”
