It was obvious that the residents have a great sense of comradery, not only with each other but with the faculty as well. It seemed like such a comfortable place to be where people support each other and make each other better. My wife grew up close to Reno and being close to family is important to us. We love the area and think it would be a great place to raise our children. I know this residency will train me well for full-scope practice, and it has a strong sports medicine fellowship as well.

I felt like I immediately connected with the residents and faculty during that event. It was energizing to learn about the opportunities residents have to develop their knowledge and skills as quality family physicians while simultaneously being supported in the exploration of their own academic and clinical interests. I love the program’s proximity to Lake Tahoe and the 250+ sunny days a year in Reno.
