    Why did you choose the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Family Medicine Residency? It was an easy choice for me to decided to stay at my home program following medical school. After interviewing at several other family medicine programs I found that everything I wanted from a program was right here in Reno. I will be able to learn full spectrum family medicine, be involved with educating and mentoring medical students, work in a supportive environment with the amazing attending physicians, residents, and support staff, and become a leader in family medicine through the new 4 year program.
