 Amy Yu

Hometown: Irving, TXAYu.jpg

Undergrad/Medical School: Stanford University for undergraduate. University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

Why did you choose University of Colorado Denver for residency? Two reasons: the people and healthcare leadership. The people (residents, attendings, support staff, etc) make this residency stellar. At interview day, I knew I would have a great experience educationally and clinically. Plus, everyone is so welcoming, which is a huge win. Secondly, I have an interest in healthcare leadership and shaping how healthcare is delivered, and the University of Colorado Denver's Internal Medicine Hospitalist track is a unique program that will afford me the skills and experience to make meaningful change. And I guess the amazing weather and beautiful mountain view are bonuses, too.

What do you want to do after residency? (Sleep), but beyond that, I might pursue a Palliative Care fellowship before working as a hospitalist. Then, onward to more administrative work.

What is your favorite part of living in Colorado? The parks - I love that there are so many here and that they're all wonderful for running, picnic-ing, Jazz in the Park, everything!

Where is your favorite place to eat? In Denver, it's a close call between Hong Kong BBQ and Dae Gee

Did you move here by yourself or with family? I moved here with my turtle, Turnip. Then my significant other tagged along a little later.

Home Town: White Marsh, MarylandAEnurah.jpg

Undergraduate/Medical School: University of Maryland. Microbiology/Virginia Commonwealth University

Plans after residency: I plan to do to an infectious disease fellowship. Afterwards I hope to work locally and abroad with Lynn (my amazing wife). We may one day work for the WHO or PAHO.

What made you chose the University of Colorado: It was the best place for my family and training. It is place that both my career and Lynn’s career could grow and flourish. I  really enjoy the great sense of community formed by the residents and the program. Also, Colorado is a place that we wanted to buy a house and we were able to do so. Colorado is an awesome place to live, bike, hike, walk our dogs, and grow a garden.

Favorite Colorado activity: Gardening and trying new foods.

Favorite thing about the University of Colorado: The great support that residents get at all levels (such as through attendings, residents, medical students, nursing, pharmacy, etc.) It is truly an interprofessional place.

Upcoming vacation plan: We recently got back from an amazing hiking/camping trip in Hawaii. I can’t wait for our next adventure together!

If you weren’t a physician you’d be: A microbiology researcher and professor.
