What you like to do in free time?
My husband and I have a young child, so we spend most of our free time as a family. We love having company over and just enjoying the fellowship of being around other people. We are avid coffee drinkers so most of our days are spent with a cup of coffee and usually a good dessert.

What do you like about the program?
The Peds Dept always seemed like such a close knit family when I came through as a student. Now as a resident, that's has been proven true in so many ways. My class frequently does things together outside of work, and the residency as a whole makes you feel like family. From team dinners on wards to block parties with the department, you can't help but feel like you're one big extended family.
