Why did you choose UMMC?: During the dinner and interview everyone was very welcoming, but specifically during the dinner I felt at home as if I was socializing with friends and family. Also, as the only children’s hospital in the state, I knew my clinical experiences would be unique and diverse. Likewise, I would have the opportunity to learn from and help underserved children and their families.
