Residency / Internal Medicine-Pediatrics, Vidant Medical Center
The support and interest to think outside the box stuck out the most to me. In my 3rd and 4th years of residency, I was reaching out to programs because I wanted to do both adult and pediatric critical care fellowships. Both program directors were not only quick to respond but interested, realistic, and supportive of me doing such a thing. You can never get a full view of a program in an interview, but it was my opinion that as long as you are surrounded by a culture of support and people who care, you can do almost anything. I felt that Rochester had that, and so far, I’ve only been proven right!
Here at the University of Rochester, there was definitely ‘above and beyond’ support that was not anything I expected of anyone.”
