After switching to medicine and obtaining his degree at the University of Wisconsin, he completed his internal medicine residency at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Dr. Novin's passions outside of the hospital include board game nights, biking, rowing, and animals.
"I was immediately struck by the welcoming atmosphere of the UW faculty and the satisfaction of current fellows with their program. Having lived in the Midwest and East Coast, I was curious to learn more about the Pacific Northwest while obtaining strong training at a reputable program."
"Rheumatology is one of the few subspecialties in Internal Medicine that offers depth of knowledge while maintaining a wide breadth of organ system involvement and disease presentation. I find satisfaction not only diagnosing complex and challenging medical conditions, but also in the ability to provide life-changing treatment and alleviate burdensome symptoms. I am also drawn by the ambiguous nature of many rheumatologic conditions and the cerebral nature of the field."
