Hometown: Fairfax, Virginia

Undergraduate Institution & Major: University of Virginia, Economics

Medical School: University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine

About: Dylan’s behavioral economics class in college was his first exposure to the study of human behavior and what ultimately led to pursuing psychiatry. Since he wasn't a science major, he decided somewhat late on medicine as a career. Instead, he followed a bit of a non-traditional path of largely nonproductive wandering around the South for a few years that was bad for his finances, but good for developing hobbies (rock climbing, weightlifting, bar-tending) that he still enjoys today. He was lucky enough to end up at USF for medical school, and is excited to be here for his residency as well.
