What is the best thing about teaching at AKFMR?

The enthusiasm each new group of residents brings. It keeps me on my toes and motivates me to keep learning.

How did you end up in Alaska?

I grew up in Juneau, went to medical school in Anchorage through the WWAMI program, and returned to the state after residency and volunteering abroad because it is home.
