    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency? I chose UNR for a number of reasons. Of all the fellowships I researched and interviewed UNR most closely matched my career goals of an outpatient family and sports practice with practical usage of ultrasound. Being able to work with the faculty here are unparalleled with years of experience in every aspect of sports medicine from providing treatment at Everest basecamp to Final Four college basketball teams and everything in between. I love Reno and the surrounding areas and my family does too, being able to live and play in the mountains and city.
