Internal Medicine PGY 4 - Chief Medical Resident
Andrew Caraganis (Chief Medical Resident)
I was born and raised in Pepperell, Massachusetts (a town no one from MA actually knows where to locate on a map).
I did my undergraduate work at Bates College in Lewiston, ME (where I really learned to love the winter) and attended medical school at American University of the Caribbean in St. Maarten (where I really learned to love the summer).
I was lucky enough to meet my wife, Emily while in medical school and we both were thrilled to continue our training at Roger Williams.
We were drawn to the family like atmosphere and the tremendous teaching faculty we are so lucky to have here. We loved the place so much, I stayed on as the chief resident (and am applying to pulmonary critical care fellowship this fall) and Emily is one of our staff hospitalists.
Living in RI provides you with a great location to get to the beach in minutes or big cities and mountains in hours. Providence has become a foodie city with new fantastic restaurants opening constantly. While visiting, you can’t go wrong eating at Los Andes (for dinner) or Kitchen (for breakfast). But really, you won’t be disappointed with any choice you make.
I love watching Boston sports (yes I’m a Patriots fan) and exploring Providence’s diverse food scene. However, more recently with the birth of my daughter Blake, I’ve become a pro at sleep deprivation and changing dirty diapers.
