Victoria Egedus Hernandez

Sparrow Hospital/MSU Neurology Resident




Chicago, Illinois


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

Coming from Chicago, I was looking to move to a program with great academic training in a smaller city. My audition month at MSU helped me realize how much I would enjoy joining the MSU neurology team. I knew working with this group of faculty and staff was the right fit for me. They make me laugh daily and inspire me with how much there is to learn in the field! Lansing was also a great choice because I have family nearby.


If you were not a doctor, what would you have chosen as a career?

Water treatment engineer, medical anthropologist, dancer


Extracurricular interests and activities:

Coffee, food, spending time with family, being active, Latin dancing, travel, the great outdoors, anthropology
