Why did you choose UA EM?

First and foremost, the wonderful group of residents and attendings that are friendly, down-to-earth, supportive and extremely knowledgeable. When I rotated here as a fourth-year student, everyone was really welcoming and enthusiastic to teach. This program has a great reputation for training amazing EM physicians. Tucson is an awesome city with great people, weather and endless outdoor activities. I had a gut feeling this was the place for me.

Exploring a new city, hanging out with locals, bonus would be with beach and sunset views.

Learning to speak Spanish, avoiding getting sunburnt, adopt a dog, and developing good work-life balance.
