Best thing to do in Nebraska if you only had one day?

Start with breakfast at Earlybird. Then walk down to midtown and enjoy the park. (Hammock optional). Take an uber to the zoo. When the zoo closes uber to Dundee and eat pizza at pitch. Finally walk down the street to memorial park and enjoy the rose garden and cherry trees. 

Most fond residency experience or memory up to this point?

When the internal medicine class rented busses and did a Christmas lights tour around Omaha. Going to the PHM conference in Nashville. Escape room with the intern class was fun. Peds intern retreat in Nebraska City. Brunch on days off. We have fun here.

Why did you choose Med-Peds?

I choose med peds because I loved adult and children patients and did not want to choose one. I liked the options of specializing after residency as well.
