I grew up in St. Louis, went to medical school in Minneapolis, did my intern year in Pittsburgh and came to the U of M in 2008. When I was applying for residency, I looked both at large programs and at smaller ones. I ended up noticing that many larger programs had busier clinical services and bigger research programs but lacked the camaraderie and collegiality of some smaller programs. What struck me about Michigan was that it seemed top-notch in both regards. Now that I am here, I've come to really like our department and the hospital system in general. Ann Arbor is a great city and an extremely convenient place to live if you are a resident.
