This recent medical school grad hopes to serve rural Arizona communities

Arizona has been dealing with a physician shortage for several years, and there have been efforts to recruit and retain more doctors here.

One future doctor has actually just left; Hayley Kiernan recently graduated from the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. She’s now at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where she starts her residency in orthopedic surgery this week.

The Show spoke with her about her med. school experience, which took place during the pandemic. But the conversation started by asking what led her to medical school.
