Why I chose to practice in Grand Rapids...
Grand Rapids is a beautiful city with a thriving medical community. As a MSU medical student, I did my clinical years here. I was amazed the vast diversity of patients and spectrum of pathology. I was also very impressed by the quality of education I recieved and high quality physician mentors that took a special interest in my learning. This made me fall in love with the medical community and I decided to do residency here. My experience only got better. I took an interest in academic medicine and administration and served as chief resident my final year of residency. I joined the Hospitalist group at Spectrum Health after graduation. During my time here I have seen a tremendous enhancement in the development of medical programs such as bone marrow transplant, heart and lung transplant and the construction of the neurosciences program to name a few. It's a privilege to be a part of the blossoming system that is serving the community by providing supreme quality care while keeping the education of future physicians and residents as a high priority.
