What do you like most about this residency program?

The culture of the Emergency Department feels close and supportive, and the faculty and residents I've worked with here have all been friendly and passionate about teaching. The program structure also made a lot of sense to me from a resident learning standpoint including the 3+1 fellowship option, the strong value the department places on operational improvement, and unique opportunities like the med flight program.

What's your favorite thing to do in your free time in Madison?

Madison is a beautiful city with tons of activities. I enjoy hiking in the nearby parks in my free time. The program also gives us access to free kayak and paddleboard rentals. As someone who spent most of my life in large cities and crowded suburbs, I'm looking forward to learning how to sail and outdoor rock climb while I'm here.
