Introduction

The surgeons I admire the most have built their careers upon a solid foundation of cutting edge research complimented by exemplary clinical skills. I spent 3 years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow under the Dr. Timothy Billiar Trauma Training Grant, in the Department of Surgery at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. During that time, I received intensive training by the NIH in the fundamentals and principles of clinical trauma surgery research under the mentorship of Drs. Timothy Billiar, Andrew Peitzman, and Yoram Vodovotz. After finishing my T32-NIH fellowship, I had the choice of continuing in research or moving forward to pursue clinical training in Germany. Through a long-standing collaboration between the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Aachen Medical Center, I was able to begin my clinical training as a resident in the Department of Orthopedic Trauma surgery in Germany. I worked arduously to expand my knowledge base and increase my clinical experience. Similarly, my passion for surgery research did not abate. We were fortunate to secure several grants, publish manuscripts, and received recognition for our work in this field. These projects culminated in oral presentations at national and international meetings. While doing my orthopedic surgery residency in Germany, I came to the realization that my passion for taking care of the entire patient supersedes everything else. This recognition led me to leave my Orthopedic residency and return to the United States to pursue my dream of becoming a Trauma Surgeon. After that, I matched in to General Surgery where I'm in process of finishing my 5 years training to become a board certified General Surgeon. My plan after that to apply for Trauma critical care Fellowship to become an academic Trauma surgeon like my previous mentors.
