What Our Residents Say

Nikul Patel Patel, Nikul, DO

I believe your residency training is one of the most important times in your medical career. You want to go to a training program that will not only prepare you to become a fully competent physician, but one that will also provide you with the skills and mentorship experience that will help you succeed in life. The UTMB Anesthesiology program offers the perfect combination of clinical experience and camaraderie. I know I would not be the anesthesiologist that I am today without the training that I received at UTMB! I am proud to say that I am currently doing my cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship here and planning to stay on as a faculty member for what hopefully will be years to come!

The main reason I chose to attend residency at UTMB was the people. I like how new residents are paired with a resident mentor for guidance. The faculty is friendly, approachable, and enjoy teaching residents in the OR and in the simulation lab. The simulation lab allows residents to experience anesthetic emergencies in a lifelike environment that enables residents to learn how to handle high stress situations and identify learning areas.

Choosing to complete my medical training in Anesthesiology at UTMB was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Our residency truly provides incredible clinical experience with excellent teaching and mentorship. I know without a doubt I will be adequately prepared to face any challenge in the operating room once residency is completed. In conjunction with wonderful clinical training, UTMB places emphasis on didactic education as well. This provides me with the knowledge I need to care for patients appropriately, and perform well on examinations. My quality of life outside of work is valued and I have made life long friendships. Our life here on the island of Galveston is unique and full of adventure, both inside and outside the workplace. I highly recommend any applicant to consider this program!

"That people generally get along well and we are friends. Also, the late rooms and the opportunities to pick up extra cash."
