First Pavlov State Medical University of Saint-Petersburg
I chose MSU/Sparrow Pediatric Residency for its friendly, collaborative and supportive atmosphere. It has clicked immediately. I also liked the curriculum structure and the opportunity to be exposed to all pediatric subspecialties. It will definitely give me a perfect basis for my future career.
I love having well-demarcated seasons and the continental climate. Plus, the nature in Michigan is really fascinating and I am looking forward to explore it during the next 3 years.
Lansing strongly reminds me of my hometown which is the capital of Russian automobile industry. The city is quiet and at the same time here you can find anything for life you could ever think of.
I love cooking and dancing. I also used to write stories and novels, one of which is in the process of being published in Russia.
I am considering applying for a Neonatology fellowship after my residency but I am open to other options as well.
