A Tour With Our Residents

What Our Graduates Say...

Stephen Smith

"The friendly and approachable residents/faculty were the primary reasons I was drawn to the University of Rochester. These individuals fostered a healthy learning environment to learn from the plethora of cases offered by the institution. Strong provided all of the cases that I needed to thrive as an attending in both academic and private environments. The residency also provided a healthy work life balance which allowed me to relax with friends/family or take extra moonlighting shifts to push my knowledge to the next level. Finally, Rochester is an affordable and convenient city for living with access to many wineries, parks, and outdoor activities. It also has a great school system and is a great choice for those looking to start a family! I was extremely satisfied with my training at Strong!"
