    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?I was born and raised in Ohio but every winter my family took a ski trip to Lake Tahoe. I fell in love with Tahoe’s beauty and the endless outdoor activities. I initially applied to UNR because of its proximity to Lake Tahoe but after interviewing, I knew it was the perfect fit. I was blown away by the residents, staff, and faculty. They have created an exceptional full-spectrum family medicine training program with a friendly laid-back atmosphere. Another important factor in my decision was UNR’s sports medicine program. They have outstanding sports medicine faculty and provide residents with many high level training opportunities.

    Why did you choose the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Family Medicine Residency? I wanted a residency program that provided a strong foundation of full spectrum medicine while I embarked on my journey of becoming a well-trained and talented physician. I grew up in a very small town near Santa Barbara, California so I find it important to develop meaningful long-term relationships with my patients, especially with those in rural and underserved populations, and this is exactly what the program provides. This residency program pays particular attention to my specific goals and provides the necessary grounds to attain more clinical experience in that area. Most importantly, what really attracted me to this program was the welcoming nature of the residents and faculty. Everyone makes you feel right at home!
