Andrew Joob, MD

PGY2 Emergency Medicine & Internal Medicine Resident

Hometown:  Wilmette, IL
Undergrad: Marquette University
Medical School: University of Illinois College of Medicine
Medical Interest:  Critical Care Medicine, Trauma, Emergency Cardiology.
Interests/Hobbies: Sports, outdoors, socioeconomic impact of Arnold Schwarzenegger on Western Civilization in the 20th century, intersection of hip‐hop and the white suburban male.

Why HCMC? In short: supreme EM and IM training via extremely knowledgeable faculty in a wonderful city. In long: I had a (somewhat ambiguous) checklist that HCMC was able to fulfill in pretty much every way. I am extremely interested in Critical Care Medicine‐‐ it was clear that through the STAB room, the ICUs and the ECMO program that I would have the opportunity to train in a place where I would be exposed to all of the latest developments in managing critically ill patients. I also was looking for a program that had good resident support for research and other academic interests‐‐  this was checked off very quickly into my interview day. And having the opportunity to practice in a safety‐net hospital for a city‐based population was also a goal of mine. So to be able to train in an environment like this(in a city like Minneapolis) made the decision very easy for me.

Why HCMC?  A hard answer to fit in a box. Although the reputation and amazing training was very important in my initial choice; the final reason was that this was the happiest hospital I’d been to. People are genuine, and the atmosphere promotes humor and humility in a perfect balance. I did an elective here and felt immediately welcome and learned more than any other elective I had done. Residents are happy, hilarious, intelligent, empowered, and have a lot of responsibility here without being overwhelmed. It was a good fit and I can brag about how great my training is.
