I was initially attracted to the Union Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program for two reasons. The first being that it is a single program, which means I got a lot of firsthand training and I didn't have to compete with other residents for procedures, experience, etc. The second being that it is a small, rural community; I wanted to be able to open a private rural community clinic where I can treat all ages, from infants to elderly, and never have to deny any patient. I gained a wealth of knowledge and experience from the program and look forward to an exciting career in medicine.
