Aaron Lesher, M.D.
How long working at MUSC: 2
What you wanted to be growing up:
I wanted to be a symphony conductor or the fry guy at McDonalds.
Volunteer work: Singing in the
choir at Grace Episcopal…Does being a surgical resident count?
Pet peeve: Surgical consults
called in by residents who don’t know the patient.
Three words that describe you: Jolly,
hard-working and quirky.
What car fits your personality:
Where do you see yourself in 10 years:
Hopefully a practicing pediatric surgeon somewhere in the Southeast.
Most rewarding thing about your job:
Seeing someone doing well in clinic after I operated on them.
Toughest challenge you have
had to face this year: Going
from internship to being a second year resident—making decisions is
harder than doing scut work.
Words of advice for new
residents: Write everything
down as an intern…absolutely everything.
