I would say it’s a great clinical experience because we see a lot of everything; it’s a really busy hospital so there is no shortage of opportunity to learn clinical endocrinology. The program faculty are very friendly and approachable, that makes it easy to get along with everyone.
Rochester is easy living, there isn’t a lot of traffic, and there isn’t a lot of stress. The cost of living is low, and I absolutely love my neighborhood. I live in Cornhill, a beautiful historic neighborhood with a tight knit community. People are very protective of it and excited about their neighborhood. I love brick houses and I’m surrounded by them and we have a fun festival every year.
