Undergraduate: University of Hartford; Medical School: University of Connecticut School of Medicine

Professional goals:

To be the real-life John Carter, M.D.

Areas of interest in Emergency Medicine:

Things done off the linear medicine track:

I did part time college while working full time in our family's construction business & as an EMT in Hartford, CT. Also was Associate Director of Community Center in Hartford.

Favorite thing about practicing Emergency Medicine:

Stimulating and interesting variety of work & patients, fast pace, high acuity.

Favorite thing about Yale:

People are truly interested in academics - whether research & development, constant improvement or simply engaging each other in a really good differential diagnosis. Yale has so many opportunities for advancing one's career goals, making connections/mentorship, seeing diverse & interesting pathology. New Haven is a great little city, just minutes away from the real city/center of the universe (New York).
