Donald Hahn, MD
Junior Fellow
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
General Surgery Residency Program: MedStar Union Memorial Hospital

What attracted you to our residency program? 
When I interviewed, the first thing I noticed was the diversity and volume of the clinical experience. I knew I would be challenged with complex cases and patient care while at the same time nailing down the bread and butter of vascular surgery. Because my wife is an internist, we needed to consider larger metropolitan areas where she could also work.  When I brought her back to Charlotte for a second look, it felt like the perfect fit for us.

What have you enjoyed most so far? 
The personality of a program and its staff, administration and fellows is one of the most important parts of an evaluation from an applicant’s point of view. And that has made the early months such a nice transition for me personally. I’m getting challenged, but I have great teachers who are patient and grounded.

What do you enjoy about living in Charlotte? 
We have a young baby, so we haven't gotten out quite like we did as childless adults, but with a little one, we love our walkable neighborhood close by the hospital. There is so much green space with two large city parks and at least two dozen restaurants within walking distance.

 

Daniel Krcelic, MD
Junior Fellow
Hometown: San Jose, CA
General Surgery Residency Program: Western Michigan University

What attracted you to our fellowship program?
The vascular attendings, case volume and complexity, and location of this program were all defining factors in my choice.

What have you enjoyed most so far?
I have enjoyed the nonstop surgical exposure we have received, from bread and butter cases to complex endovascular.

What do you enjoy about living in Charlotte?
Charlotte has a great restaurant and brewery scene. There is so much to do outdoors and around town. Charlotte is also a short drive from both the mountains and beaches of the Carolinas.
