    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?Reno has always been on my radar since my undergrad time in the Bay Area for various reasons but most of all the fun family trips to Lake Tahoe and Reno local casinos. Location with varied seasons added extra strengths when it came time for residency application. However, what solidified my commitment to the Reno Family Medicine program was really the experience during the interview. The program portrayed perfect combination between sufficient guidance from staff and adequate autonomy for residents to be independently competent. The bonds and interactions between current residents feel nothing less than being part of a family. I actually felt a sense of belonging even during the interviews and tours. On top of that, the academia with new innovations involving the options of MD/MPH or MD/MBA programs, AND the Elko program, only sealed the deal in my mind that this program is the one to be with. As if that wasn’t enough, this program is constantly growing, despite that fact that they have been around for decades and their alumni are in leadership positions. Medicine is an ever-evolving field and the best place to learn medicine is to be in a program with SOLID PROVEN RECORDS of producing successful physicians.
