Why did you go into trauma/acute care surgery?
I became interested in trauma care when I joined the National Ski Patrol in high school. Ever since then, trauma surgery has been a natural progression of my interests.
What makes Boston Medical Center special?
Boston Medical Center and BU School of Medicine are special parts of my history. I went to college at BU, grad school at BU and medical school at BU. I am a member of BU College of Arts and Science Dean's Advisory Board and a diehard BU Hockey fan! I can be found at almost every BU home hockey game!
