Hi, I’m Garrett Muhlstadt and I was born and raised in Kankakee, Illinois. I met my wife while going to school at Olivet Nazarene University. After we graduated, we got married and moved to the great state of Indiana so I could attend Marian University for med school. As a critical care nurse, my wife has given me many tips on how to get in nurses’ good graces (which I fully intend to use). After visiting programs all over the country, we chose Memorial because we felt it was the place where I could gain the best broad-spectrum training while still supporting my family during this challenging season of training.
Together, we like to hike, camp, play board games and visit with friends and family. I also like to play most any sport and use 3D printing as a hobby. I am very interested in integrating medicine and engineering in order to better serve our patients (both inside and outside of the clinic).
My wife and I have a call to missions and will work with the underserved wherever the Lord leads us. We felt the opportunities here, combined with the support of awesome faculty and residents, would prepare us well for whatever comes after residency. We are so excited to join the Memorial Family!
