Rachel Beredo, M.D.

Up until I was 6 years old, my family moved a lot (5 times!). Then we moved to Michigan and it’s been my home ever since. I love having all 4 seasons, the friendly feel of the Midwest, the proximity to lakes and outdoor activities. I went to private school through high school and so going to Michigan and Wayne State for undergrad and medical school was a much different experience. While these schools were much larger than I was used to, the diverse clubs, football games, and lots of classmates (friends) will always be a part of me. With this said, I am very happy at Wayne’s Med-Peds program which combines large categorical programs with a smaller, more intimate program. I look forward to clinic days when I get to see my peers. I haven’t decided what specifically I want to do in the future, but I’m confident that my training will leave me well-prepared for anything.

Random tid-bits about me: My dad is a physician and my sister is a dentist which makes for interesting dinner conversation. I ran hurdles and played trumpet in high school. I love trying new, unusual things: I’ve tried zorbing, trapeze class, and started snowboarding in med school.

What's the best part about training at the DMC?
The diversity. At DMC you will interact with many different cultures and socioeconomic statuses, and get to see many amazing cases that you only read about in books.

What do you love about Detroit?
I’m not much of a city girl, but I’ve really grown to love Detroit. There’s lots to do in Detroit with Eastern Market, the DIA, Belle Isle, Riverfront, and several local breweries. There are also fun suburbs to explore with shopping, nightlife, and Metroparks. My favorite thing about Detroit are the many culturally ‘yummy’ spots nearby: Mexican town, Dearborn (Middle-Eastern food), Hamtramck (Polish food). Mmmm…
