I knew when I first visited the program that this is where I belong. Initially, I was impressed with the town. I was then amazed at the beauty of the facilities in which the program operates. Finally, upon seeing the hearts of the Attendings and the dedication they have to the program, I had no further questions. Now that I am here, I couldn't ask for more dedicated faculty who fully support me and my education. I have also formed deep friendships and camaraderie with my fellow residents.
People and their languages, music, composition, dance, nature, living things
I remember fishing a lot, practicing wilderness survival skills (building shelter from sticks and leaves, trying to start fire with a bow drill), cleaned windows, tutored students for the MCAT, worked in the office at my dad’s cleaning company, traveled
This program's faculty felt like the right group of people to train under. Now that I am here, I appreciate the quality of our lectures and bedside teaching, the accessibility of our faculty, and the diversity of our patient population. Our resident class is great, too, and I enjoy living near Nashville.
I am originally from Middle Tennessee, and so the program's location was a huge factor for our family. The hospital is gorgeous and one of the most welcoming places I’ve ever been. We have dedicated faculty who have made the transition from 4th year students to interns as smooth as possible, and a good group of residents who genuinely like one another. I viewed this residency program as an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of what could be an amazing training program for residents, and to make an impact on the members of the community we serve. Now that I am here, I see that our patients really are the underserved and we really do make a difference when we show up to work.
