    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?There were many reasons that I chose this program. My husband and I moved to Reno in 2015 for me to start medical school. Rock climbing has been a driving factor in our lives for 20 years, and it is no coincidence that we chose to live within short drives of Tahoe, Bishop and Yosemite. In fact, Reno is a great place for all the yuppie activities, including running, mountain biking, etc... and we have enjoyed these with good friends over the last four years. Having gone to med school in Reno, I worked closely with this program's residents and faculty during third and fourth years. I have always enjoyed their sense of community, and have had great respect for their professional skills. This program has an excellent reputation among the Reno medical community. That there is a sports medicine fellowship here in Reno is a big bonus for me!

    • Hobbies: Hiking, camping, backpacking, hunting, dipnetting, soccer, spikeball, reading

    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?There were a lot of great reasons for me to choose this program. I was initially drawn to apply here because of the great outdoor access and my desire to move out west again; however, after interviewing I was blown away by the friendliness of the residents and faculty. UNR family med strikes a great balance between the resources of a larger academic institution and a smaller community feel that allows family docs to practice cradle to grave medicine. All the residents are eager to learn and always willing to help and teach! I couldn’t be happier with my choice to be here in Reno.
