I believe the most important aspect of medicine in today’s society isn’t an expensive lab test or imaging study, but rather a simple conversation between the physician and patient. The patient’s history remains the most critical aspect of any encounter in medicine, and access to laboratory data and imaging are there to aid in confirmation of a diagnosis. I also believe it is important to remember that we are not only treating a patient, but each person as a unique individual; an individual that has a family, a certain socioeconomic and cultural background, and his or her own life story.
I chose UCHealth because of their reputation for providing extraordinary health care throughout the state of Colorado, and their desire and determination to always put patients first. I am eager to join a health care community with the vision and capacity for growth like UCHealth. Also, moving to the beautiful state of Colorado happened to be a bonus!
Why did you get into this profession?
I chose medicine because of the profession’s capacity to bring individuals together from a variety of backgrounds, the ability to greatly impact lives, and create amazing relationships between patient and physician. I also enjoy the day to day intellectual challenges the profession provides.
Hobbies: Hiking, Climbing, Snowboarding, Mountain Biking, Soccer, and traveling the world!
