A little about myself. . .

Hey!  My name is Alex Whitaker and I’m happy to be joining the class of 2016.  

I was born in New York City and grew up just north of the city in Westchester County.  That makes me a huge Giants’ and Yankees’ fan, despite now working just a few blocks from where the Orioles and Ravens play (I’m warming to them - slowly).  For college, I headed to Upstate New York and attended Colgate University for four great years.  After working in Boston post-graduation, I decided that I missed the snows of Upstate New York and went to medical school at SUNY Buffalo.  It didn’t take long for me to realize that pediatrics is by far the best specialty.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, spending time with my girlfriend Kate (a med-peds resident at Maryland!) and hanging out with our new kitten Phin.  I am definitely looking forward to exploring our great, warm new city.
