1. Where is your hometown and where did you do your medical school training?
I am originally from Emporia, Kansas. I went to Medical School at the University of Kansas School of Medicine.
2. Why did you choose UNMC for your residency training?
I was impressed by how approachable and friendly the staff was. Many of our staff are known on a national level, yet can be reached at any moment to assist with a clinical dilemma, or just to shoot the breeze. There’s the perfect amount of supervision, and autonomy to produce a skilled Internal Medicine physician. Plus, the ability to still maintain a life outside of Residency was a very important point in selecting this residency.
3. What is your favorite thing about Omaha, NE?
I really enjoy the culture of downtown Omaha. There are some of the best restaurants you’ll find anywhere. There are also many sporting events in Omaha too, with the College World Series, Creighton Basketball and Baseball, Nebraska Cornhusker Football, The Olympic Swim trials. Plus, the fitness and running community is fantastic.
4. What do you like to do away from work?
My main hobby is Marathon running. I have completed 19 marathons, and am almost always preparing for my next event. Residency has not slowed down my training, and in fact I have set 2 new personal records as a resident, and even ran the Boston Marathon during my 2nd year. This program has allowed me to train very intensely, including doing 60-70 miles per week while on a busy inpatient Wards month. I also enjoy spending time with my wife, and my 1 year old son. I always make time to cheer for my Kansas Jayhawk Basketball team, and also my transplanted team of choice, the Husker football team. Plus, all of the random resident get togethers are always a good time.
5. What are your plans after residency?
I plan to return to my hometown Emporia, Kansas and practice as a General Internist.
