    First, the location is ideal. My wife and I were raised in Northern Nevada and we plan on raising our family here as well. Second, throughout medical school I had the opportunity to work very closely with the Family Medicine faculty starting in my first year--and there is no better group of people in any program anywhere! The residents and faculty here are my people, everyone is happy and the education here is excellent. For these reasons and many more, it was clear that this program was our number one choice.

I love gardening and find so much satisfaction in growing my own food. During my downtime, I might be found cooking, listening to podcasts, reading, or spending way too much time solving crosswords.

    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?I chose the Family Medicine Residency at UNR because it was a great fit for me. I grew up in Reno and looked forward to moving back to be closer to my family and all the opportunities for outdoor recreation in the area. On my interview day, I found everyone involved in the program to be genuine, kind, and supportive. I was particularly struck by the strength of the training in pediatrics and obstetrics as well as the abundance of procedural training opportunities. As someone who wants to keep obstetrics in my practice, I am so happy to work with certified nurse midwives, family medicine physicians, and OB/GYNs in caring for pregnant and laboring women. Learning about the job offers that graduating residents were receiving made it clear that the program supports residents in pursuing training opportunities for their individual career goals and develops well-rounded physicians that the community respects.

    Why did you choose the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, Family Medicine Residency? I knew about this program because my father graduated from this residency over 20 years ago. When I started to look for a program, I was only mildly considering it. After I came to town for an interview, I decided to come here. The area is great for my young family and the program will provide the education I need to become a competent physician.
