I was raised in California and went to Medical School in Beijing China at the age of 19. I selected family medicine because of the continuity of care of the whole family. Family medicine is usually the healthcare entry point for people across their lifespan, which can give us the opportunity to empower them with their health outcome. I chose this program for my residency because it is one of the only programs that I know that allows you to work in a great diverse population in the city of Minneapolis in addition to spending year 2 and 3 in a rural setting. I feel like the rural setting gives you a one- on- one or more centered approach on training and learning from different providers. I love traveling to random places around the world. I’ve been to North Korea by train from China. I have also been to Tibet and Mongolia.
