Why Kent Hospital?
“Kent Hospital lived up to all the hype and I feel so lucky to be here. There was no other program I had exposure to that had such great focus on resident education. The residents and attending physicians were some of the nicest and capable teachers I had encountered. The Emergency Department was perfectly set up to give the residents a sense of ownership over their own pods and patients. With only two other residency programs at Kent, the Emergency Department did not feel overcrowded. The nurses and staff were understanding and helpful. I knew within the first few days of being at Kent that everyone there had a great, adventurous attitude, awesome work ethic and the ability to have fun! It was clear Kent had a superb training program and I knew that I wanted to be part of it, and being mainly from the West Coast I knew it was time to get me some East Coast flava!“

Hobbies & Interest: “I enjoy basketball, soccer, traveling, pottery, motorcycles, anything outdoors, and eating delicious food. I especially enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife, family, and growing community of friends.”

Why Kent Hospital?
“I didn’t know what I wanted in a residency program until I rotated at Kent Hospital! What I saw was an amazing, one of a kind learning environment. The residents were always happy to learn, and the attendings were more than willing to teach. It is a strong academic program that still has that close knit, family feel to it. Day one rotating there I knew Kent was where I wanted to be!”

Hobbies & Interest: "Food, food, food! I love to cook and entertain. Any excuse getting a group of friends together! I also love the outdoors, hiking, and spending the day at the beach or traveling and exploring some place new. "

Why Kent Hospital?
“New England is not only my home, but it has one of the most elite academic medical communities in this country. So, when I asked myself where I would get the best Emergency Medicine education and training, I looked no further than Kent Hospital. Steps to the ocean, minutes from Providence and less than one hour from Boston. What more could a girl ask for? The relaxed, family-like atmosphere that the EM residents and faculty provide is just an added bonus I could only have hoped for. "

Hobbies & Interest: "I enjoyed cooking (and eating!), growing things, watching movies, long walks on the beach and spending time with my family and friends. I‘m currently working on a musical comedy called “ER – the musical.” I hope to gather more material through my time at Kent!"

Why Kent Hospital?
“The people! I spent the month of December during my last year of medical school at Kent with the EM residents, attending physicians, nurses and techs. Hands down, it was the best overall experience for my “audition” rotations. I feel that I will receive excellent training at Kent, while also remaining close to the majority of my loved ones in New England. "

Hobbies & Interest: "Surfing (even in the winter), running, anything outdoors, sports medicine, wilderness medicine, and geriatric emergency medicine."

Why Kent Hospital?
“During my audition rotation I felt very welcomed by the attendings and residents. Everyone I had interacted with was supportive and I felt that my personality fit very well with the other resident, whose abilities were very impressive. The patient volume, one-on-one attending, resident ratio, and treating high acuity patients throughout all four years are among other reasons why Kent was high on my rank list.”

Hobbies & Interest: “Going to the gym, running, hiking, watching basketball and football games (Knicks and Jets!), and going to concerts/shows, trying new restaurants, playing pool, guitar, watching movies.”

Why Kent Hospital?
“I rotated through many emergency departments and not a single one came even close to making me feel as welcome and enthusiastic about Emergency Medicine as Kent did. There is a real sense of friendship and respect between the attendings, residents, and staff which creates an environment that is both fun to work in and perfect for learning. It’s also going to be nice being pretty close to my hometown in Connecticut!”

Hobbies & Interest: “I love to spend time with family and friends, check out local restaurants, mountain bike, play racquetball, and hike.”
