Jaeger joined us from Loma Linda Medical School in Loma Linda, CA where he was selected AOA.  He has also received awards such as the Mayo Clinic Psychiatry and Psychology Departmental Scholarship and authored several papers and presentations. During his senior year he worked on literature review, episode development, content creation and production of a Psychiatry podcast for mental health professionals and mental health enthusiasts. He writes of his experience choosing Psychiatry “As I found myself in the midst of each new rotation, it was these stories and connections with patients that gave me joy. Particularly in Psychiatry, I found myself amazed by the fortitude of the human spirit, mesmerized by the power of human connection, and humbled that I was privileged to share in the experience.” Jaeger is a 3rd degree Black Belt with a passion for the outdoors, board games, and pour-over coffee.
