Emergency Medicine Resident at Rutgers Community Medical Center
Congratulations to Courtney Knieriem for matching into her top choice, an Emergency Medicine residency.
Courtney graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Biology major, and a minor in both Chemistry and Music Technology. Capitalizing on these interests before medical school she both worked in a music store repairing guitars and assisted an eye surgeon as a surgical technician.
"I actually functioned as an optometrist in the eye surgeon’s office, and he ended up being a huge mentor and encouraged me to go to medical school."
Following her love of the outdoors and emergency medicine, Courtney chose to take a 'Medicine in the Wild' elective offered in conjunction with Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency. The elective included both classroom education and a three week backpacking and wilderness expedition in New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness. Loving the experience she also secured a letter of recommendation from one of the Harvard professors teaching the course.
She just matched into an Emergency Medicine residency at Rutgers Community Medical Center, her top choice. "It’s right on the ocean too. I couldn’t be happier."
