During your decision process, if you would like to talk to the program director, faculty and/or current fellows, we encourage you to arrange a visit. We will schedule an AM clinic visit for observation, meeting/discussions and question answering. This visit will give you an idea of the clinic pace, patient mix, clinic culture and personalities of those you will be working with closely.  To schedule a visit, please contact our program coordinator.
