Class of 2026
Medical School: Dow International Medical College, Pakistan
Hobbies: I love making use of whatever ingredients I have on hand and turning them into something healthy to eat for my family and me. I also love listening to podcasts, hiking, biking, road trips, and exploring new coffee shops. I used to teach oil painting and hope to get back into that in the future.
Future Career Plans: I am very open to all that family medicine has to offer. As of now, I am especially interested in functional or integrative medicine, urgent care, and procedures.
Medical School: Bharati Vidyapeeth Medical College, Pune, India
Hobbies: I find a great adrenaline rush in traveling and exploring new places. Going to the gym and binge-watching series are my ultimate stress busters. So far I have done kayaking, river rafting, parasailing, and bungee jumping. Skydiving is definitely the next on my list. I love to dance and go on hikes, and El Paso's abundance of beautiful trails makes it the perfect place for me.
Future Career Plans: I would like to pursue a fellowship in geriatrics/sports medicine and publish papers that contribute to evidence-based practice, but at the same time, I am also open to exploring all the diverse disciplines family medicine has to offer during my residency. Nevertheless, my unwavering goal is to make a positive impact on my patient's lives and to look after their overall well-being.

Hobbies: I enjoy photography, arts, traveling, and cooking. In my free time, I like to read graphic novels and manga, play video games, and practice martial arts.
Future Career Plans: I find the prospect of providing comprehensive and continuous care to patients in a primary care setting fascinating. Similarly, the fast-paced nature of urgent care also appeals to me. However, I am open to exploring other specialties as I continue to learn and gain experience.
Medical School: St George’s University, Grenada
Hobbies: Outside of medicine, I enjoy Pilates, hiking, racquet sports, exploring local art/farmers markets, traveling to experience different cultures/foods, and spending quality time with family and friends. Such a warm and thriving community… and it's a thrill for my husband and me to have moved to El Paso where we can hike the Franklin Mountains in our free time!
Future Career Plans: My priority as a family medicine physician is to be welcoming to people from all lifestyles. In doing so, I hope to make health care more efficient, equitable, and accessible to all. While my interests in family medicine are broad and evolving, I have a particular passion for underserved communities and a growing interest in preventative medicine and outpatient procedural skills. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn, grow, and care for the El Paso community with the TTUHSC El Paso Transmountain team.

Future Career Plans: I have an open mind, but right now I am really interested in sports medicine. I am an avid sports fan who follows the NFL, MLB, NBA, and NCAA football. This initially drew me to the specialty. However, I also share interests in pain and addiction medicine. I had some rewarding experiences working with these patients while completing my outpatient clinical rotations at RCSI. Family medicine has so many opportunities, so we will see what the future holds!
