Why Michigan Surgery
"I chose to train at U-M because I wanted to be involved with a program that was within a hospital setting treating patients with special needs and complex medical histories. I felt that the U-M GPR would allow me to build confidence in my skills and knowledge, broaden my prospective, interact with other healthcare providers, and learn to properly manage dental emergencies."
