Why Infectious Diseases?

I really enjoy the wide range of conditions we see and helping as a consultant in complex, challenging cases. Plus, you don’t have to own one organ system! I especially enjoy working with HIV/AIDS patients and in antimicrobial stewardship.


Why SLU?

St. Louis is a beautiful city with so many parks, outdoor activities, and I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far. The program offers numerous opportunities to work with patients from so many different backgrounds with a large variety of ID problems.

Why Infectious Diseases?

"I chose ID because it is a field where you get to think through a case much like finding the puzzles of a mystery and putting it all together to try and find the final diagnosis. To be an Infectious Disease specialist is not only to find an infection but also being to able to recognize non-ID diagnosis that can resemble an infectious process and be up-to-date with general medicine topics."

Why SLU?

"I chose SLU for my fellowship training because of the wonderful experience I had while rotating here during my residency. The faculty and staff are very supportive and will do their best in guiding you every step of the way. Being a large academic center, I feel it offers plenty of clinical experience and great deal of complex cases that will strengthen my knowledge as an Infectious Diseases specialist."
