“Boston has been an amazing place to explore. I really enjoy the diverse music scene here including a rich history of classical music, the burgeoning underground techno scene, the Latin music festival in SoWa, and seeing iconic musicians like McCartney live at Fenway park. The greater Northeast food scene has something for all palates- oysters and udon are becoming a classic combination for me! It’s hard to beat a Boston summer, and I love playing tennis, biking along the Charles, and being in and near the Atlantic- but fall and winter here are also magical, from hikes in the beautiful fall foliage to skiing in Vermont. It is truly an incredible place to live and train!” – Stephen Trudeau, PGY2
