I chose to train at The University of New Mexico (UNM) because one of my mentors completed residency at UNM and strongly recommended that I consider it. After rotating here as a sub-I, I knew this was where I wanted to train. Warm weather, great co-residents and attendings, lots of trauma, and the culture of the program were big reasons that I ranked UNM #1. Albuquerque has lots of trauma with a great operative experience, warm weather, and lots of outdoor activities. Team fracture reductions in the ED are some of my favorite experience in this program thus far. My interests outside of medicine include hiking, jogging, camping with my dog. I enjoy exploring the nearby area and hiking trails with our dog nearby.
