From Dean Michael Awad
I lived on the East Coast for most of my life and did some training on the West Coast, but had not really spent any time in the Midwest. I first visited St. Louis when applying for fellowship and was very pleasantly surprised! So much, in fact, that I sought it out for my first career as a physician and the rest is history! St. Louis has been a wonderful place to live and to raise a family. Even though I have been here for several years now, I am still finding new restaurants and new things to do every weekend. Your life and your friends inside and outside of the medical school will keep you balanced; seek them out. And remember that there are many people willing to help you whenever you need help — myself included. Don’t hesitate to come by the office or shoot me a message if you every need anything. That is why we are here!
