Medical School: Midwestern University - Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine
About Me: I grew up in Iowa where my dad trained horses. A few years after college, I moved to Chicago. My previous professional background in business and healthcare brings a diverse skill set to my residency experience and builds upon my passions for medicine, teaching and the art of clear communication. I recently celebrated my 16th wedding anniversary (October '10) with my wife Jennifer. We have a son and a daughter. Outside of the hospital I love camping with my family, eating breakfast at Greek restaurants, running and Sudoku.
Why Resurrection: I chose Resurrection Hospital for my Family Medicine Residency because of the people who work here. Everyone is highly skilled, compassionate and consistently interested in teaching. I also appreciated the way the Family Medicine Residency is woven throughout nearly every discipline in the hospital and has earned great respect among the hospital physicians and staff. Lastly, I have been impressed with the hospital itself, the building improvements, the technology, aesthetics and even the cafeteria. It is a great place to work, learn and have fun.
