Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I knew from my experiences through my internship and APPE rotations at University of Michigan Health that I would get to explore diverse clinical and administrative opportunities while being supported by an awesome team! Plus, an M.B.A from one of the top programs in the country is a big deal and opens doors for great networking and career opportunities.
