This program has an incredible family feel, you could tell from how their residents spoke about it on interview day ad my experience so far how much they really care about our well-being whilst also being excellent educators that they genuinely care about guiding us to being the best possible physicians you we can be.
They value your input, encourage your feedback and really nurture an environment of open communication and strive to make improvements to the program as a whole. This is a big emphasis on education, and they encourage us to make our own decisions constantly which is exactly what I was looking for, that sense of responsibility I have whilst also being trusted to make these choices is really helping me develop my skills. My co-residents have been incredible welcoming and supportive and I've made some good friends already who share common interests whether that's going out for dinner and drinks or hiking through the beautiful parks around here.
Birmingham is also a great city to live in, its the perfect size, everything is 15m away, loads of great breweries, some fantastic restaurants and its so green and pleasant throughout the year. I have absolutely no regrets about joining this great program and truly enjoy being a part of the culture that they hold in the highest regard and look forward to continuing to grow as a physician as this program continues to evolve. .
