Dr. Hendin was born and raised in the St. Louis area. While living in Chicago he pursued basic science research then completed his medical training at Loyola University Chicago. He moved further north for residency at Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. During residency he developed an interest in medical education and also completed research on industry involvement in rheumatology consensus-based recommendations.
"It was an easy choice. Rheumatology combines all the best parts of medicine: the most interesting diseases, an exciting and rapidly expanding armament of therapies, and the ability to give patients years or even decades of improved health and quality of life."
"I was so impressed with the interview day. I felt like I connected with the faculty and fellows and really thought it would be the place to become the best rheumatologist I can. I had also never been to Seattle but was super excited to move to such an incredible city!"
