Dina Soloveychik, MD
Where I am from: I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago but completed both my undergrad and medical school at Indiana University.
Where I am going: I am interested in epilepsy and general neurology and will be starting an epilepsy fellowship after residency. I also have a special interest in palliative care in the pediatric neurology patient population and integrating palliative medicine into the care of our patients.
Why I am here: While interviewing for residency, I was looking for a program where I could be taught by the best in the field but also offered a close knit, supportive community in which to train. Here at Wash U in St. Louis, I have been exposed to clinical and academic excellence across all neurologic specialties as well as a program that values community, wellness and supports its residents fully. I have also grown to love the city of St. Louis during my time here. When I moved here, I realized how much this city has to offer. On my days off, I always seem to be able to find a new restaurant to go to (that was usually recommended to me by one of my co-residents!). St. Louis is also a very dog friendly city and on weekends, one of my favorite activities is going to brunch with my husband and our dog followed by a walk in one of the many parks in St. Louis. I have been surprised by how many great places are just a short drive from the city and make a perfect day trip. Some of my favorites are going winery hopping just west of the city and going hiking in the many state parks in Missouri.
