Why Arizona and UA College of Medicine – Phoenix​:
I chose this program for many reasons, not least of which is the people. The faculty, staff, and residents are all amazing people that I knew would make my four years a fantastic experience. I also have family in the area and my fiance and I chose to forgo moving back to the wintery North East, opting to spend a few more years in the sun!
