About me: I was initially drawn to the Brown program because of its dedicated research track (there is an impressive range of research opportunities here), but I have since discovered its many other strengths: the program directors are flexible and responsive to residents'; needs, the teaching is first-rate, and clinical rotations are uniformly excellent across the different sites. But really what has made me happy to be here are the people (attendings, hospital staff, and especially the trainees). I don't think residency would be half as interesting (or fun!) without these warm, talented, enthusiastic, and remarkably well-adjusted(!) individuals I have the privilege of working with -- and learning from -- everyday.
