Why University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics

The acuity and breadth of clinical experiences at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics provides a strong foundation for me to advance my interests in pediatrics, critical care, and emergency medicine. Additionally, I was drawn to University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics' unique opportunities for residents to practice autonomy, including but not limited to code response, decentralized staffing, and engagement in academia.  

Favorite Part of Iowa City

I am always down for a good burger and have enjoyed exploring Iowa City restaurants and breweries with friends. This fall, I look forward to making my way to local orchards and pumpkin patches for some seasonal fun!
