Residency: University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix Internal Medicine - Pediatrics

Personal Interests: Trail running, backpacking, running/snuggling with my dog Bongo, pretty much being outside 24/7 is my goal in life. My husband and I love to cook and I like to bake, learning more sourdough techniques! Also trying to learn how to play guitar, but that is not working out too well.
Why UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix: Dr. Huddleston is amazing (as well as the other Med-Peds leadership). Our Med-Peds family is also a great group of individuals and it makes a tough residency much better! You have everything you could ask for in Phoenix, even for me not being a city person, I am still able to escape all the chaos and rejuvenate. I am so thankful to be a part of this family!

Medical School: Eastern Virginia Medical School
Career Interests: Rural medicine, primary care
Personal Interests: I am a big fan of day hiking. I grew up in the mountains and love the fact that I can drive to a number of different day hikes — despite living in downtown Phoenix. I also enjoy ultimate frisbee, good food (especially baked goods, I have a bit of a sweet tooth), and dance.
Why UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix: Phoenix is a great place to live. It has a great combination of outdoor activities — while also having all the amenities that you get when living in a big city. From the medical perspective, Banner and Phoenix Children's Hospital are two of the largest hospitals in the area. As residents, we get to see a bit of everything and have the opportunity to work with patients from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Yury Fomin, MD

Medical School: Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University
Residency: University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix
Career Interests: Hospitalist with a role in medical education
Personal Interests: Hiking, kayaking, cornhole, following all the major sports teams in Phoenix
Why UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix: I chose the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix because I knew with both a large adult and pediatric hospital I would have exposure to a wide breadth of conditions that would prepare me for practice after residency. I also felt both the faculty and current residents were very supportive on my interview day and this has only been confirmed during my time here. Additionally being able to walk outside after a long shift and find yourself surrounded by sun and palm trees definitely helps with wellness!

Personal Interests: Music (listening, performing, writing), sports (especially basketball.. go suns!!), going for long walks/hikes/runs with my wife (and PGY-3 peds resident at PCH) Emma Schnuckle and our dog Jasper, reading (history, philosophy, Dostoevsky)
Why UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix: Having grown up in Arizona, I knew how much the area had to offer in terms of great outdoor activities and easy weekend getaways to escape the summer heat. Having done medical school clinical rotations here in town, I also became familiar with the medical community here and loved the combination of large diverse patient populations paired with expanding academic institutions interested in incorporating ideas from residents. But what has blown me away since being here is our leadership within the med/peds program who are our tireless advocates between two residency programs at separate institutions and work closely with us to sculpt schedules and experiences that prepare you for whatever career you chose after your med/peds training.
