Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?:I was first introduced to the program while attending the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) National Conference. 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.

Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?:Initially, I was attracted to University of Nevada Reno Family Medicine Residency by the boundless outdoor opportunities of the region and endless sunshine (I was living in the dreary Pacific Northwest at the time). After learning more about the program, I quickly took note of the camaraderie amongst residents and the mentorship of the attending physicians. After interviewing with the program, I knew that I would make lifelong friendships with my co-residents at UNR and would have exceptional guidance leading me to realize my full potential as a Family Physician.
