What drew you to the program? My mentor in medical school encouraged me to apply to more community-based surgery programs for residency and I am so glad he did. Since day one I have felt incredibly supported, and I could not imagine a better place to carry out my surgical training. The truth of every surgery residency is that the work is hard, the hours are long, and there is more to learn than you could possibly imagine. Luckily, I spend my time at the hospital working in a team that has my back, teaches me constantly, and makes me belly laugh every single day. On top of that, I've gotten great experience in the OR and have been given a lot of autonomy in patient care. This is an environment that fosters learning, autonomy, growth in surgical skills and clinical reasoning, and friendship. I am so thankful to be a part of it and I can't wait to see what the next 4 years brings.
