“I applied to UCSD Med-Peds because of its reputation for excellence, but I made it my top because of its stellar culture. The program leadership is deeply invested in making this the best place to train, and all the residents are dedicated to supporting each other’s success and wellbeing. I feel so lucky to be training in such a beautiful place with such wonderful people, and I can’t wait to pay that forward!”

“Choosing a Med/Peds program isn’t easy. Every program across the country has amazing components, but there were a few key things I was looking for that UCSD had in droves. Firstly, the people speak for themselves. The community here is unparalleled. The Med/Peds residents are friends as well as co-workers, and on my hardest days of residency it is this that I am most grateful for. Secondly, I am becoming a good doctor. From the Rady Children’s Hospital to the VA to the two very different UCSD hospitals, I am constantly working with different populations with different needs and I am better because of it. And lastly, location really does matter. I spend my days off at the dog beach, at an amazing brewery, on a new hike, or just sitting outside on my porch feeling grateful I escaped the snowy winters of the east coast. I would need longer than a paragraph to tell you everything, but UCSD was my first choice, and I have had no regrets since then.”
