Victoria  Chiou, MD

Undergrad: University of Chicago
Medical School: Rush Medical College

Why Masonic: The strong sense of community and support within the program sold me on Masonic. I needed a program where I could learn how to doctor without the anxiety of disdain or punishment if I made a mistake. The faculty are patient focused, and encourage us to take into consideration the patient's whole life picture. Most importantly, the residents are individuals I am excited to learn from and spend time with, both in the hospital and life at large!
Professional interests: Urban underserved medicine, obstetrics, adolescent medicine, and quality improvement

I feel like I couldn't have picked a better place to continue all my interests and explore new ones!
