PGY-1 (if current PGY-2): Michigan Medicine
Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? My long term goal is to go into academia, so I mainly looked into programs that had strong components of clinical training, teaching, and research - all of which Michigan Medicine had. Looking back at my PGY-1 year, what I appreciated the most from the residency program was the emphasis on critically appraising literature to enhance our clinical practice. The preceptors are also brilliant - with the practice-changing research that they publish along with the strong rapport that they have with other healthcare providers, they are amazing role models to learn from.
