Hi! My name is Pooja, I was born and raised in Oregon before moving out to San Antonio, Texas with my family during high school. I went to undergrad at UT Austin (go Longhorns!) and made my way to Houston for medical school. I ventured out to Greenville for an away rotation during my final year of med school because I had some family in Anderson, and found myself loving the city of Greenville and the EM program here. I was beyond ecstatic to find out that I matched to a place that felt like home, and feel blessed to be here to train as an emergency physician.
