He will begin a Pulmonary and Critical Care fellowship at the University of Wisconsin in 2022. Brandon’s joy outside of medicine comes from the great outdoors and hanging around Mt. Hood. When he’s not at work, he can often be found hiking, camping, or snowboarding with his partner and their dog, Tilly.
