Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I knew I wanted to pursue a residency at a large academic medical center, with a wide variety of rotation opportunities to gain a solid clinical foundation. Beyond that, I was drawn to Michigan because of their emphasis in developing well rounded clinicians- from the teaching experiences and close affiliation with the college of pharmacy to the emphasis on research and leadership. Most of all, the preceptors are phenomenal! I wanted an environment where I would be challenged, but also supported.
