A big welcome to Dr Megan Dickson, an ER resident in southern California
I grew up on the beaches of Orange County, California with a deep love for the ocean. I spent most of my childhood swimming, both in the oceans and the pool as a competitive club swimmer. I picked up surfing as an adult and fell in love. I am currently doing residency in Emergency Medicine in Loma Linda, California, about an hour outside of some of the best beaches to surf at in California. I hope to keep surfing as much as possible over the next several years. After residency, I plan to do medical work abroad. I am hoping to use the versatile skills I’m learning in Emergency Medicine training to work in underserved areas with limited resources. When I’m not in the ER or surfing, I like to practice yoga, run, or hammock anywhere and everywhere!
