Get to know Tyler Willing, DO, medical toxicology fellow.

If you want to see as many toxicology patients as possible during the two years, pick a program that will help you do that!

What makes your LVHN training program different from others across the country?

Besides the obvious fourth year of residency to hone and improve your practice of emergency medicine, the thing that stood out about LVHN is the faculty. Each attending you work with over the course of the residency wants to see you succeed and excel and will help you reach your goals. I would not have made it into fellowship and through residency without the unwavering help and support of the faculty members and attendings.

What has been the most extraordinary part of your training experience so far?

The Lehigh Valley. When I moved to Pennsylvania from Chicago after spending my entire life in the Midwest, I was a little concerned that the Lehigh Valley may not be the place for me, but I discovered how wrong that was. Not only did I make lifelong friends during residency, but the Lehigh Valley is now home and I am happy to be spending another two years here for fellowship!

What is one memory you have from your training so far that will stick with you for your career?

It’s hard to pick just one. From the incredible pathology you see on a shift-to-shift basis to the amazing memories I made with my friends and co-workers over the last four years, it’s truly been an unforgettable four years.

What is one piece of advice you would share with someone as they select a training program?

Decide what it is that you’re looking for in a program and then go for it! If you want to do research and get published, find the program that will help you do that! If you want to see as many toxicology patients as possible during the two years, pick a program that will help you do that! I chose the Lehigh Valley because it was an opportunity to expand on what I wanted, and allows me to see and round on critical toxicology patients and have the opportunity to work a lot with addiction medicine.

What does it mean to be a fellow at LVHN?

It means four years of hard work and long hours, but the product is something worth working for. I came into this residency program as an enthusiastic but lost intern and like to think that I left as a very capable emergency medicine physician who will be ready for anything that walks through those ER doors! I’m excited to see the product after two years of medical toxicology fellowship with such a great team!
