Why did I choose Urology? I fell in love with the complexity and breadth of procedural skills, diversity of practice, and an environment full of down-to-earth people I can thrive in!
Why McMaster Urology? Early hands-on experience, rigorous training, wide range of urological exposure, ample opportunities for research, supportive staff and administration, collegial and tight-knit group of residents, and coming back to Hamilton - where it all began!
Urological Interests: Too early to tell, as all areas of urology are equally interesting to me so far!
Other Interests: Travelling, music, hitting the gym, chilling with friends, sports (Raptors, Leafs, Red Sox), and video games to hone my hand-eye coordination for urological procedures.

Why did I choose Urology? I really enjoyed working with the diverse patient population and as a surgical specialty it offered the ideal mix between surgery and medicine. Urology has a wide range of procedures and the advancement of surgical technology/technique make it an exciting time to be training in this field.
Why McMaster Urology? McMaster Urology offered a great combination of early exposure, excellent surgical training, and patient volume. A big draw for me was that the entire group was tight-knit and clearly enthusiastic about their training.
Urological Interests: I think it's still too early for me to know, but I have really enjoyed general urology, MIS, and endourology so far!
Other Interests: Skiing, basketball, volleyball, golf, cooking, and spending time with my family
