Ahren Arase, MD
About Me: Born to a US Army surgeon in Germany, I grew up in Los Angeles. Did my undergrad at Berkeley, master's at USC, and then Rush for medical school. The winters in Chicago are terrible, but the people are genuine. I enjoy anything that goes really fast (motorcycles, cars, family medicine residency).
Why Resurrection: My only exposure to Resurrection was the interview day but I was struck by the facility, residents, and faculty. The facility is state-of-the-art. The residents are high caliber and all genuinely happy. The faculty and staff have recently changed, so there is an air of excitement about the new direction of the program combined with its established reputation for the best FP training in Chicago.
