Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? Michigan was love at first interview. Just 5 minutes into my PPS discussion with Stan Kent about the HSPA program I knew I wanted to come here. Visiting Ann Arbor brought memories of the best white Christmases growing up, clarity to which mentors I would want to surround myself with as a resident. Not to mention the cherry on the top: a Ross MBA.
