Why did you choose to become part of Michigan State University Neurology?

I knew I wanted to be at Sparrow Hospital after my fourth-year rotation. I was already familiar with many of the faculty through my time as an MSUCOM student. However, it was the true community atmosphere throughout Sparrow Hospital that I quickly fell in love with. Through my day-to-day experiences, I witnessed firsthand the unique opportunities provided through exceptional curriculum and diverse pathology. I knew then Sparrow was the program to provide the education and exposure I needed to be a competent and caring physician.
