    Why did you choose the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Family Medicine Residency? I chose the University of Nevada[, Reno] School of Medicine because of the cohesive group of senior residents who I interacted with on a consistent basis as a medical student. This residency felt like I was joining a family and that I would have all the support I could possibly need to make the transition from student to physician. I also really like the significant inpatient pediatric training that we get in this residency. I feel that this experience is unique to Reno and not something that was common during my interviews at other schools. Finally I love the Reno-Tahoe area. There are a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities within 30 minutes in all directions. There are not many other places that I would rather call home.
