David Horn, MD
Class of 2018
Hometown: Cedarburg, Wisconsin
Undergrad: University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Med school: Medical College of Wisconsin
Why Albuquerque: The UNM EM program has everything I could want, including ample critical care, excellent faculty, and a very hands-on training experience. The department has a big commitment to community service. Also, much of my family now lives in the Southwest, so I am happy to be closer to them.
Life before med school: As a teenager I dreamed of being Trey Anastasio. Throughout high school, all my friends and I did was play music in my parents’ basement. I set my sights on medical school during college. I also worked full time as a laboratory technician between college and med school.
Hobbies: Tabletop gaming and spending time with my family.
Worst/best job: I have never had a truly terrible job. My strangest job was certainly the two months I spent doing paperwork at a graveyard. My best job was a summer I spent landscaping. I was 19 years old, and I got to spend many beautiful Wisconsin days in the open air.
Favorite band: I have seen Umphrey’s McGee live 30+ times.
Favorite movie: Waterworld.
