Justin Steele, MD

Hometown: White Hall, IL

Medical school: University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria

Why did you choose Spectrum Health for your residency/fellowship? I loved how welcoming the Program Director and Associate Program Director were, even before I received an interview! I completed a Med-Peds residency, so there are still a lot of questions of how we fit into PHM fellowships, but leadership here has been so supportive and proactive in ensuring I get Internal Medicine exposure. Furthermore, the fellowship is extremely customizable depending on your clinical interest. Not to mention, Helen DeVos Children's Hospital is an amazing tertiary medical center with so many resources for patients from all over Michigan.

What are your clinical interests? I'm interested in medical education, simulation and virtual reality, as well as Global Health.

Hobbies: I love playing Ultimate Frisbee, hiking, weight lifting, reading and playing video games! Grand Rapids luckily has plenty of beautiful hiking opportunities nearby and within a couple of hours!
