I'm On The Move!

There's lots of big news here in Texas. I found out last week that I have been accepted into an Internal Medicine Residency at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK. I will be studying for my PhD and obtaining board certification at the same time.


By the end, I will be a boarded "specialist" in internal medicine and have the PhD. This will allow me to stay in academia and teach. My hope is to be involved in research focusing on diabetes and the hormones that fat tissue produces (called adipokines).

This is HUGE EXCITING news! We will be moving this summer and I start the new job on July 1st. I'm not sure I will be able to continue the blog. I have to see what latitude I will have while in the program. I also expect to be CRAZY busy for the next 4-6 years.

I do so love my wife! This could only happen with the support and love of my family and my wife is going above and beyond! I'm both blessed and spoiled. My daughters are excited to be going on an "adventure" and are looking forward to picking out their new house. We'll see how excited they are when it's time to actually move....

Thanks to everyone for their support and I promise to keep posting until at least July. We'll see what happens after that :)
