Couple Enrolled into RUSM Engaged, Now Married with MD Degree and Residency

May 27, 2016

Daniel Piotter is a recent RUSM graduate who will begin a Family Medicine residency at Louisiana State
University – Shreveport (LSU Shreveport).
"It's a big relief," says Piotter when asked how it felt to have successfully gone through the National Resident Matching Program® to obtain a residency. 
"It's a huge, huge relief," chimes in his wife, Tierney, who is also a RUSM graduate starting a pediatric residency at LSU Shreveport on July 1.
The Piotters met in a biology class at San Francisco State University while completing their undergraduate degree. They later engaged and then enrolled together at RUSM.
Tierney admits there was some initial hesitation about attending a medical school outside of the United States, but her due diligence quickly diminished her concerns.
"We definitely did our research before going. We knew we had what it takes to become doctors and believed Ross would give us the tools that would get us to where we are now," said Tierney. "We are happy the way it turned out," said Tierney.
"Yes, we are!" interjects Daniel.
Eventually, Daniel is looking to complete a fellowship in sports medicine and Tierney looks forward to beginning a career as a general pediatrician.
