Hi! My name is Allyson DiMagno. I grew up in western New York in Fairport, just outside of Rochester. I attended Cornell University for my undergraduate studies where I was also a member and captain of the women’s basketball team. Following my graduation, I returned home to Rochester for two years, where I stayed busy working in research and development at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, helping out as an assistant basketball coach for the women’s teams at St. John Fisher College and Fairport High School, and refereeing youth soccer. These opportunities enabled me to pursue some of my passions before heading to metro Detroit to start medical school at Oakland University William Beaumont (OUWB) school of medicine.
Throughout medical school, I was drawn to family medicine due to its broad scope of practice and the ability to build relationships with patients and families of all ages and backgrounds. I knew that Memorial was the perfect fit for my future career aspirations – a rigorous training program providing broad spectrum care while also serving a broad and diverse patient population in South Bend. I am very excited about the supportive community of residents and faculty that I will be joining during my family medicine training and look forward to serving the South Bend community.
Outside of medicine, I like to split my free time between working on my newest baking creation in the kitchen and spending time catching a sporting event or lacing up my sneakers for a game of pick-up basketball. I am excited for this chapter and getting a chance to explore all that South Bend has to offer while training at Memorial!
We are excited to announce 9 family medicine residents will be joining our Memorial family!! Daniel Brannen – A.T. Still University Keith Christian – University
