Critical Care Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA
My educational experiences include board certification in internal medicine from Presence Saint Joseph Hospital in Chicago and Chief Residency in Internal Medicine at Presence Saint Joseph Hospital. I will graduate from the Critical Care fellowship training program at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, in June 2016. I also had graduate training at Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis, having completed a two-year Master’s program in Health Administration.
As a Chief Resident in Chicago, I led a group of eighty-four Residents and medical students, which tested my administrative, leadership and teaching skills. I learned a great deal in the process. Working in Critical Care has provided me with an additional unique skill set. Caring for a critically ill patient with multisystem involvement demands an alert physician, one who is a team player, quick and decisive and ready to respond to the ever changing needs of a critically ill patient. It is these very demanding conditions and the daily change of medical conditions that one treats that has drawn me to critical care. My fellowship experience at Mayo Clinic gave me further opportunity to advance my clinical skills and research experience, further enhancing my knowledge and administrative qualities. Also of note, as a critical care fellow I am pursuing focused training in mechanical circulatory devices particularly ECMO.
