Andrew Mahtani, M.D., has settled in Southern Illinois where rural primary care is better than he ever dreamed. He is working in a hospital employed practice that is predominately outpatient, with inpatient call one in four weeks, soon to be one in five, with mid-levels handling all home calls. The training through UConn has more than adequately prepared him for all aspects of primary care. Walking into the office was so much easier than residency, as the nurses handle most of what was handled during residency, which allows him to focus on the patient, and easily see a much larger volume of patients than he was able to in the office. The community has been very welcoming, and it is wonderful having his weekends back.

2007

Stephanie M Chu, D.O., After finishing my Sports Medicine Fellowship at UConn in 2008, I traveled to the Mountain West and the Big XII (soon to be Pac-12!) and took a job with the University of Colorado School of Medicine. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine, faculty for CU Sports Medicine, and team physician for the Colorado Buffaloes. I have many “hats” that I wear throughout each week, all over the Greater Denver and Boulder area. University Family Medicine in Westminster is where I have my continuity FM clinic and spend time as a Foundations of Doctoring Preceptor for a 2nd year medical student. CU Sports Medicine in Denver is my community Sports Medicine practice where I see athletes of all ages and abilities in the community. I also spend a number of clinic sessions a month at Rose Family Medicine Residency where I am a community preceptor for Family Medicine residents and our Sports Medicine fellow. And finally I have training room and game coverage responsibilities for the CU Athletes. Go Buffs! Lastly but most dear to my heart is my position as Medical and Hygiene Consultant for the non-profit organization Hope Shines. I travel to Rwanda in the summers for ~3 weeks and conduct health physicals on Rwandan orphans prior to volunteering as a mentor to these orphans in a week-long “Summer Camp.” This is a new and extremely rewarding aspect of my “job” that is completely volunteer! But I can’t imagine summer without “my kids.”
