Class of 2026

Jeffery Appelbaum, D.O.

Hometown: Leawood, KS
College: The University of Kansas
Medical School: Kansas City University
Why KU?: There are many reasons I chose KU! First, staying in KC was very important to me so my wife and kids can have as much support as possible through residency. KU is also the place to be for highly complex and unique cases so I know I will gain experience that will benefit my career as a physician. Last, I was made to feel very welcome by the residents and attendings and everyone supports each other well throughout the training process.


Omar Asefi, M.D.

Hometown: Kansas City, MO
College: University of Missouri – Kansas City
Medical School: University of Missouri - Kansas City
Why KU?: As a Kansas City native, I grew up hearing about the excellent care and training found at the University of Kansas Hospital. I always wanted to work closely with people from my community. Now, I have the great opportunity to complete my residency training in KC, while staying close to family and friends.


Jeff Beach, D.O.

Hometown: Rye, Colorado
College: Colorado State University- Pueblo
Medical School: Rocky Vista University- Parker
Why KU?: KU really stood out to me based on the family feel of the program. Not only did Dr. Hendren remember my family details, but so did Britany and Heather. I felt like a person rather than an applicant! Additionally, the residents I talked with all felt supported and that their experience was fantastic.


Matt Castinado, M.D.

Hometown: Overland Park, KS
College: Kansas State University
Medical School: University of Kansas SOM
Why KU?: The program camaraderie I experienced firsthand through shadowing and my month-long elective was exactly how I’ve envisioned my time with my co-residents for the next four years. After residency, I am interested in pursuing a fellowship and I feel the early exposure to sub-specialties and excellent mentorship I have received as a medical student/future resident from the attending physicians will allow me to make a confident and informed decision regarding my future!


Brooklyn DeVries, M.D.

Hometown: Sioux Falls, South Dakota
College: Augustana University
Medical School: University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine
Why KU?: I was really drawn to the warm, collegial atmosphere I experienced while interviewing at KU and the location in a vibrant midwestern city. The program's strong academic reputation and commitment to excellence spoke for itself!


Courtney Dorris, M.D.

Hometown: O'Fallon, Missouri
College: University of Missouri-St. Louis.
Medical School: University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Why KU?: After rotating at the University of Kansas Medical Center, I knew it was the perfect fit for me. Between the friendly, positive residents and staff, the intricate surgical cases, the extensive experience with blocks, plus the strong didactics and pediatric cases, I could not have asked for anything else! I really look forward to my time at KU!


Kale Golden, D.O.

Hometown: Elkhorn, NE
College: University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Medical School: A.T. Still University
Why KU?: Not only does KU excel on the basketball court, the medical center has a tradition of academic exceptionalism from its birth.  I chose KU because I wanted to be a part of an institution that pushes the envelope in patient care.

 


Kelsey Gustafson, M.D.

Hometown: Faribault, MN
College: South Dakota State University

Aquib Jamil, M.D.

Hometown: Overland Park, Kansas
College: The University of Kansas

Elle Lee, D.O.

Hometown: San Jose, CA
College: UC Davis

Raymond Torres, M.D.

Hometown: Sacramento, California
College: Brigham Young University

Why KU?: Matching at KU was a relief and a joy. In addition to being a well-respected program in terms of medical education, the faculty was warm and welcoming in their interactions with me and I could feel that this would be the perfect place to thrive as a person and as a physician.
