Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I chose Michigan's Residency Program because of the wide range of opportunities that are available. As a first year resident I have the ability to complete and publish two manuscripts, work with the affiliated school of pharmacy in a teaching role, and serve on a few different committee's at the health system. Also, having a larger residency class creates built in friendships where you can learn as well as have fun together!
