Internal Medicine PGY 4 - Chief Medical Resident

Jamie MacLeod
a) Born: Ottawa, Canada

b) Undergrad and Medical school: Washington State University, American University of the Caribbean

c) What do you like most about RWMC? As I was leaving my interview at Roger Williams I remember feeling there was something special that set it apart from all my other interviews. On paper it encompassed a lot of what was important me to: a smaller program size in a community hospital, in house fellowships, well rounded faculty and opportunities for research and mentorship. The Rog has provided all that in addition to a very tight knit group of housestaff, something unanticipated. There is a lot of camaraderie, support and loyalty amongst our program which I think sets it apart in an unexpected way.

d) What do you like most about living in RI? Providence is an eclectic city boding numerous universities and artists alike. Like any larger city you can always find something new and exciting going on. But at the end of the day it’s also got a small town feel when you dine at local eateries, visit green spaces or just go for a bicycle ride to unwind at the end of a long day. Best of all there are lots of other places to visit in the surrounding area, nothing is more than a short drive away.

e) Favorite place to eat in RI/Providence: Too many to choose just one! Definitely Kitchen, Waterman Grille and Vanuatu Coffee Roasters for starters.

f) Hobbies: Traveling, swimming, running, watching movies and discovering new cuisines

g) Future plans: Applying for pulmonary critical care fellowship

h) If not a doctor? Tough one! Probably something in the world of sports physiology working with athletes as I spent nearly two decades as a competitive swimmer.
