A New Class of UMC Heroes

This month, we officially welcomed our first ever class of UMC Emergency Medicine Residents! And we want you to get to know them right here, each month.

Lilly Amezquita, M.D.


Hometown: Edinburg, Texas

Lily completed her undergraduate degree in Immunology at Brown University before going on to medical school at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. One of her favorite research projects included the study of protein folding involved in Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

She is excited about the opportunities UMC has in store for her, especially being a Level I Trauma Center. Lilly also looks forward to the teamwork in the UMC Emergency Center. She loves that our EC places an emphasis on teaching patients as we serve them

Dan Brown, D.O.


Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah

Dan pursued his undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and attended medical school at Rocky Vista University in Denver, Colorado. He has previously worked as an ER tech in a small critical-access hospital ad as a clinical researcher at the University of Utah.

When asked why he chose UMC’s Emergency Medicine Residency, Dan answered: I am confident UMC will provide me a great training environment and a strong support system.

It has been his dream to work in Emergency Medicine, so Dan is eager to fulfill that dream here!

We look forward to all of the ways this residency program will elevate our emergency care and know you do too.
