Hometown, college, medical school, other schools:
North Providence, RI; Providence College; Brown Medical School (a.k.a. The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University); Brown University, and the Harvard School of Public Health
Build an academic career focusing on international health issues e.g. making diagnostic tests for the developing world.
Areas of interest in Emergency Medicine:
At this stage everything-that's why I went into it!
Favorite thing about practicing Emergency Medicine (or specifically Emergency Medicine at Yale):
It's got to be the faculty
Favorite thing about Yale:
It's got to be the faculty and the residents. The faculty has a wide range of research interests, especially in international health, and they'll work to facilitate whatever you're into. The residents are happy, competent, and interesting-interviewing and coming back for a second look that's really what put it over the top.
Random research and writing projects, biking, hiking, camping
Random personal factoid:
I hiked the Appalachian Trail with the name "Afterburner" - not because I was fast but because I had a little stove malfunction and left a mark on an unfortunate picnic table. Once worked at Papa Gino's at the old Foxboro stadium. Proponent of "power dancing".
