Our Lighter Side

The Loyola University Medical Center (LUMC) FPMRS fellowship program prepares trainees to be successful clinicians, surgeons and researchers; we work hard during our training, but one of the best perks of being a fellow at LUMC is that you become part of a family who not only enjoy working together, we also enjoy spending time together outside of the office.

A nice selfie of our two amazing female fellows. Megan Brady (our 2015 fellow) will be joining an extraordinary group of fellows and faculty - again, who wouldn't want to hang with these two....

Three Amigos
The original Three Amigos: The FPMRS 2013 to 2014 fellows were a very special group. Not only were they some of the hardest working fellows and amazing teachers, they really enjoyed working together. After a hard day in clinic, the academic office staff could tell when the fellows were back in the department due to the joking and laughter that could be heard in the hallways. 

Dr. Mueller and Dr. Yi
Dr. Mueller with Johnny at graduation. He was her "first official" graduate as a Program Director and will be a hard act to follow. However, Ahmed is definitely up to challenge.
