Why did I choose Otolaryngology? I love the variety of practice that is offered by this specialty. There is a mix of medicine and surgery with time being shared between the ward, clinic and the OR, and there are procedures of differing lengths, some of which are acute in nature and some of which require more long-term and ongoing care for patients. As well, we learn about ways to not only increase a patient’s longevity, but also their quality of life, which has been incredibly rewarding.
Why McMaster Otolaryngology? Supportive clinical and learning environment with a great group of residents and staff!
ENT Interests: Still too early to tell!
Other Interests: Running, hot yoga, volleyball, skiing, reading, and travelling
