Nikhil Mull, MD '08

Nikhil Mull, MD '08

"Many people think of general internists as doctors who push a lot of paper around, but I think what I've learned is that general internists are like the coach of the football team. They're calling the plays. It's up to the specialist to decide whether to run the play you called, but you are ultimately responsible for a lot of the decision-making."

Paul Phelps, MD '10

Paul Phelps, MD '10

"When I was in medical school, I spent a year on a Fulbright at Aravind Eye Hospital in Madurai, India. I had heard of oculoplastics, but that was my first experience with it. After my internship, I did a three-year ophthalmology residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, a very clinically oriented program. I did around 300 cataract surgeries, which is a lot for a residency program. From there, I went to the opposite end of the spectrum, to a very academic eye pathology fellowship with Dr. Daniel Albert, who's one of the gurus of eye pathology and ophthalmology in general."
