Chief Residents 2021-2022

Welcome to the University of Chicago Emergency Medicine Residency program website! We are privileged to serve as chief residents this year. Be sure to look at all of the resident profiles to get a sense of the diversity of our residents and program. We may all come from different parts of the country but our interests converged on receiving excellent clinical training and caring for patients on the South Side of Chicago. We bring our wide range of experiences, interests, and backgrounds together to teach and learn from each other in a program that values and champions resident development and independence.

Our program is one steeped in tradition and has trained leaders in emergency medicine since 1972. We are lucky to have a tremendous amount of support, not only from our EM faculty, but also from faculty in departments throughout the institution that collaborate in research, teaching, and outreach.  We have the opportunity to work side by side with some of the best physicians in the country across multiple specialties, and have the special privilege of serving Chicago’s south side community.  One unique aspect of our program is the focus on exploring our place in the community and working with community champions and organizations to further health and wellbeing for everyone in Chicago. 

In our emergency department you will care for patients in the busiest trauma center in the state, and manage extremely high acuity medical patients.  You will get all the experience you need to become a confident procederalist and a leader in the field of emergency medicine.  All while training alongside an amazing group of individuals who will grow with you and become some of your closest life-long friends.
