“Charming” is how colleagues often describe UW Medicine plastic surgery resident Ashwin Soni. It was tough but I knew my long term-goal.” Persistence paid off: Soni landed a one-year research fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital, where he published peer-reviewed papers and book chapters but was barred from operating due to visa regulations. “I have never worked that hard in my life,” Soni said. Why submit to more intense training in a place where you know no one? Upcoming events through March include presentations at Highline High School and Seattle Pacific University on careers in medicine, a Doctor for a Day Workshop in conjunction with Healers of Tomorrow, a Speed Dating Mentorship Mixer for Medical Students, and representation at the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) National Conference.
His dapper, pocket-squared look is augmented by a refined British accent for which he thanks his mum: “She would correct me when I did not say my T’s properly.” But Soni embodies more than charm, says Jeffrey Friedrich, director of the plastic surgery residency program. He then matched at Johns Hopkins for a one-year preliminary residency in general surgery, where his goal was to prove he could meet the U. “Their hours are intense and I got to operate a lot as an intern there.

“He represents the type of doctor we are trying to train here. I really built up technical skills that year.” At Johns Hopkins, Soni heard that UW Medicine’s plastic surgery department was adding residencies.
