“The soul of our department is the collective energy and personalities of the staff and residents. Cliché, yet true. Our department is full of approachable, genuine, hard-working and most importantly supportive individuals who ultimately feel like family. You’ll find your fit here, which will replace some of the stressors of residency with moments of belonging and reward.”

During my interview day, every resident I met was caring, down-to-earth and incredibly dedicated to their patients. I knew that I wanted to become a clinician like them, and I am lucky to have found an incredibly supportive resident family here that reaffirms the impression I got on my interview.”
