Why did you choose the Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center Internal Medicine Program?
This program provides a personalized learning experience with knowledgeable instructors. The faculty members are highly supportive and prioritize the well-being of their students. During my interview with Dr. Riffle, it snowed in Poplar Bluff and I was pleasantly surprised to witness Dr. Riffle’s dedication to his residents’ safety. He personally ensured that they were safely transported to and from their homes. PBRMC is undoubtedly the ideal institution where I can acquire patient care skills from exceptional individuals and enjoy the learning process.

What impacts do you hope to have on the medical field?

I derive great satisfaction from assisting individuals grappling with health issues. My experience as a patient counselor at Howard University Hospital involved aiding patients with multiple comorbidities who faced challenges with adhering to their medication regimens. Looking ahead, my aspiration is to create a specialized program that focuses on enhancing medication compliance and enhancing the overall well-being of such patients.
