Life as a resident can be unpredictable, hectic and stressful, wrote Raul Reyes of UTMB’s Office of Public Affairs. For Dr. Mark Fisher, chief resident of surgery at UTMB, long days and hard work are the norm. However, his focus is unwavering, intent on helping those who least can care for themselves. “Getting where I am today has been a struggle,” he said. “I’ve had to dig pretty deep many times to realize these dreams. And, for me, being here at UTMB, I feel like I’ve made it to the Olympic team.”
