Why I Chose Union Hospital Family Medicine Residency:
I was introduced to Union Hospital through one of its alumni. This alum spoke so highly of the program, mentioning its versatility, its robust academic experience and personable faculty; all of which were trails highlighted and confirmed to me in my interview. In addition, everyone was personable, thoughtful, and were focused on creating well-rounded family doctors capable of handling anything. This residency was clear on creating an environment that fostered both professional growth and personal growth. All these traits combined led me to choose this residency as I am confident it will help make me the best family doctor possible.
