Favorite clinical rotation: My favorite clinical rotation was my first rotation in family medicine. I worked with a group of physicians that delivered babies in addition to general outpatient care. It was incredibly rewarding to help deliver the babies and see them in the clinic in the subsequent weeks.

What draws you to Family Medicine? I see family medicine as both the most challenging and rewarding specialty. The scope of care is immense; from the emergency department to the labor and delivery floor, family physicians are pushed to the limits of their knowledge which leads to a life of learning and growth. The rewards of family medicine for me result from the life-long relationships built with patients and the opportunity to help patients live better, healthier lives.
