Class of 2019
Post-graduate employment: Academic practice, Neurology, UCHealth, Denver, CO

How our program prepared him: "Although the majority of my practice is in neurology, there is a large proportion of sleep disorder and psychiatry that I see that overlaps with my neurology patients. This training helped me treat both primary sleep disorders and neurology patients who also have overlapping sleep and mental health needs."
