Resident IR-2

Picture of Elliot Russell, MD


Elliott was born and raised in Ames, Iowa. He left home to study bioengineering at Syracuse University for undergrad. Having had enough of life outside of the Midwest, he returned to Chicago to attend medical school at Northwestern University, and stayed in Chicago to complete a prelim surgery year at St. Joseph Hospital. He dabbles a little in a lot and is down to try almost anything new. Established interests include any outside activity in any weather (including soccer, basketball, spikeball, hiking, boating, snow skiing, etc), playing board games, and cooking. As proud fur-parents of our cat, Maeby, Elliott and Libby hope to grow their fur-family with a dog after leaving the big city.
