I am no longer Schrödinger’s resident…
A week ago today the verdict arrived. I am Utah bound to pursue residency training in Family Medicine.
I am thrilled.
I fell in love with Utah when I travelled there for a wilderness medicine elective last spring. With scenery like this, can you blame me?
That wasn’t my first trip to Utah, as I had previously visited Salt Lake City for the first Physicians and Ancestral Health symposium. Knowing some ancestrally/evolutionary-minded physicians in Utah and at the institution I am heading to definitely played a role in my ultimate decision to make Utah my top choice for residency. Add in excellent clinical and academic opportunities, on top of happy and interesting faculty and residents, and I know I’ve made the right choice.
I’m really looking forward to this exciting new chapter in my life, though not before I get in a couple more months of travel and adventure! (I head back to Ecuador on Tuesday!)
