I chose UAMS Internal Medicine Residency because: I wanted to get trained in a university setting which has a good fellowship and research opportunities. Of all the programs why UAMS? I couldn’t forget the day I interviewed here, residents were so happy and the people I met were so warm and welcoming. At the end of the interview day I had a strong gut feeling that I will be happy here. That’s why I chose UAMS.

My future plan after residency:  I haven’t decided, but cardiology is one of the subspecialty I am interested in.

Something you would never guess about me / fun fact about me: I can sleep 14 hours straight.

My favorite part about living in Little Rock:  You can reach work without any hustle in the morning, and of course I love the weather and greenery here.

My favorite place to eat in Little Rock: Cantina Laredo, Chi’s, Zagna

In my free time: I like to watch movies, TV series, play badminton, spend time with my family.
