Harry Potter movies (particularly the last 4 in the series) All disney animated films – particularly The Little Mermaid, Lilo and Stitch, and Lion King, All the Fast and the Furious movies (RIP Paul Walker), Gladiator, Titanic, Pearl Harbor … Ok so maybe watching movies should be added to my hobbies section

Why NJ EMS Fellowship: This fellowship is the only one that I found that would truly allow me to explore all the areas of prehospital medicine I was interested in – Tactical medicine, Event medicine, Flight medicine (Fixed wing and rotary), and having my own pre-hospital response vehicle – Which is exactly you want when your trying to find your niche in a relatively new area of medicine.  We also get excellent exposure to the business side of prehospital medicine, and are given the opportunity to experience being a deputy medical director. You won’t find another fellowship that grants you all of those experiences, especially in one year, which made choosing this program easy for me
Interests:  Event medicine and Tactical medicine, along with providing relief during natural disasters
