“I found rheumatology fascinating because it is a field with diseases that are often challenging to diagnose but come with recent therapeutic advances which have led to improved disease outcomes. I am drawn to the attention to detail required to diagnose and treat rheumatologic disease along with the long term patient-provider relationships that often develop.”
“I chose UW for the breadth of clinical exposure, diverse career opportunities, structured mentorship, and location in Seattle.”
