The Internal Medicine-Family Medicine residency program will be closing when the class of 2022 graduates. Graduate medical education at St Vincent has decided to support and grow the traditional primary care residency programs of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Starting in July 2019, each of the other programs listed will have one more resident per year. This grows our number of residents and allows more primary care doctors to graduate more quickly, responding to the need Indiana and other states have for primary care physicians.
Graduate medical education will continue to train and support the current IM/FM residents throughout their training, and they can graduate and become dual board-certified in Internal Medicine and Family Medicine.
We have amazing IM/FM residents and are so fortunate to have them here with us until 2022. I am proud to work with them and direct their program.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, I moved to Michigan when I was 10. Newlyweds, my wife and I are now excited to start another adventure here in Indianapolis as part of the St. Vincent family! As a Christian, my faith is very important to me and I am thankful to be part of St. Vincent's mission of treating their patients' mind, body, and spirit. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife Hannah, doing anything that requires me to be active (soccer, basketball, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, baseball, running), playing the piano, singing, and watching movies. Medically, I am passionate about underserved medicine and hope to eventually work in my own clinic providing full-spectrum care to my patients with my wife, who is a nurse practitioner. We also hope to serve on the mission field together.

Knowing that I want to pursue a future in Geriatrics, I'm excited to begin my residency with St. Vincent's IM/FM program. Looking forward to my journey alongside great colleagues and faculty.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy hiking, swimming, traveling, reading, and baking.

Having grown up in South Florida and attending medical school in New Orleans, I am incredibly happy to be up in the Midwest, away from the constant heat! I’m very excited to be a part of the IM/FM family! The program provides such broad training and is exactly what I was looking for in a residency program. All I know about my future is that I would like to incorporate hospital-based practice into it, potentially somewhere I could fill a teaching role as well.
My wife and I have been loving Indy so far, and we are looking forward to making new memories over the coming years. Outside of medicine I enjoy playing video games, bowling, reading, and most recently I’ve picked up the hobby of woodworking.

I was born into the humidity saturated ease of New Orleans. I dearly love it. My life, however, has taken me further than the Mississippi’s muddy waters. I’ve studied abroad in the Austrian Alps, gone on mission trips to the corners of the Amazon, and road tripped through our beautiful country. In each of these adventures, my Catholic faith has played a role in leading me there. So too with my decision to join the IM/FM program here in Indianapolis. I had two goals in choosing a residency program. First, find the best and broadest family medicine training with an emphasis on caring for the sickest of the sick. Second, find a program and hospital that allows me to practice within the wisdom of the Catholic Church. The IM/FM program here at St. Vincent’s Hospital brought both of those goals together.
My curiosity ranges wide both inside and outside of medicine, typical family doc. I like working with my hands and doing procedures, especially using ultrasound which is quickly becoming a vital component of medical education. I hope to pursue St. Vincent’s Global Mission concentration and to complete Napro Technology training through the Pope Paul VI institute.
Outside of medicine, I do everything I can to get outside. My bride and I built a wooden kayak a few years ago that we launch on any reasonable body of water that crosses our path. I have a love of hammocking in forests with a good book, my favorite being A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken followed closely by Lord of the Rings. Finally, I nurture a special fondness for travelling because “There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after”.
Medical School: University of Texas School of Medicine in San Antonio
I grew up in Attica, a small rural farm town in western Indiana and graduated from Wabash College with a Spanish major. I, then, cut my professional teeth with Teach for America where I taught 8th-grade science in the Puo Grande Valley of Texas on the border of Mexico. That’s also where I met my wife, Sarah!
After teaching for another two years, I completed a master’s program in physiology at the University of Michigan. I returned to Texas where I completed my medical training in San Antonio. I’m so grateful to be a part of the St. Vincent residency in IM/FM! I have a passion for working in underserved areas, especially where there is a need for Spanish speakers. I would love to one-day work in both an inpatient setting and found/maintain a clinic that provides psychosocial medical care to high-need populations. With 4 kids (4, 3, and 8months x2), my life and hobbies are centered around making opportunities for quality time, staging lightsaber battles with the kids, fixing broken toys, and discovering indoor/outdoor areas that are kid-friendly and/or free.
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us; we IM/FM graduates.
