What drew me to Anesthesiology: I love to learn, and there is no limit for the knowledge in the medical field. In the future, I am very excited to learn more about anesthesiology. I would like to learn about the knowledge of different anesthetics, and I also like to practice more about my hands on skill. I love working in the OR, and being on the other side of the surgical table. I always remind myself to be the patient's advocate and make sure they are comfortable throughout the procedure. Interacting with the patient pre and post surgerys are also my favorite part in my rotation. I get to hear different stories. When I wake them up from their sleep I get to tell them how the procedure went and see them smile.
What do I like to do in my free time: Reading, listening to podcast/audio book, riding bike

What drew me to Anesthesiology: In the preclinical years, I enjoyed studying anatomy, pharmacology, and physiology. In the OR, it was exciting to see the immediate effect of a medication on a patient's vitals, along with the necessity of making on-the-spot adjustments. Additionally, I liked the quick procedures found in anesthesia and the immediate difference seen by the patient.
