Class of 2026

University of Minnesota

Hello! I’m Louis and I was born and raised in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. Growing up, I developed a love of the outdoors, and this is where you can still find me in my free time. I enjoy just about any outdoor activity but particularly love fishing and hiking with my dog, Roger.

My path to medicine was a non-traditional one, via nursing school while living in England. I returned to Minnesota and completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Minnesota. Before medical school, I worked as a researcher in structural biology and later in a virology lab. During medical school, I did a 9-month longitudinal clerkship in Rural Minnesota, where I fell in love with full-spectrum family medicine. I enjoy the variety of opportunities available to family physicians and the ability to form meaningful, life-long relationships with patients.

When I was looking for a residency program, I wanted a place where I could get robust training in all aspects of family medicine and live somewhere with plenty of outdoor activities to recharge outside of work. Full Circle Health in Boise seemed like a great fit for both of those goals, and I was very impressed during my interview here. I could instantly feel the warm and welcoming atmosphere among the residents, faculty, and staff that I met in Boise. I am so excited to join the residency program and continue my journey towards rural, full-spectrum family medicine with the amazing people at Full Circle Health.
