Anthony Rizzo, DO
Medical School: Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine
About me: I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago in Burbank, IL. I went to Marist High School on the south side. For undergrad, I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign GO ILLINI. I doubled majored in Chemistry and Molecular & cellular biology. After college, I attended the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. It was a great school and I loved the OMM aspect of my training there. I am very close to my family and friends. I recently was married on June 1, 2013. In my spare time, I love going to the movies, reading for fun, and exercising on a daily basis.
Why Resurrection: Resurrection is a great fit for me because the program had everything I was looking for. A well rounded patient population especially being able to work with a great pediatric population. Being a hospital in Chicago is a plus for me because I hope to stay in Chicago when I start practicing by myself. When I met the residents, I really felt I was going to fit in here. The residents reminded me of myself. The faculty are extremely helpful and have a great passion for teaching. One thing that stood out the most to me about Resurrection is that everyone is happy here and that was important to me in a residency program. I am very happy with my choice and I look forward to the next 3 years here.
