I also felt like there was both a strong pediatric and medicine component to the training and truly enjoyed all of my interviews with the faculty here.

Carson Morley
Carson Morley, MD

Undergraduate: University of Utah
Medical School: University of Utah
Career Interests: Pediatric intensive care unit 
Personal Interests: Hiking, kayaking, skiing, AZ day trips — Sedona, Tucson, Jerome and, of course, the Grand Canyon are some of my favorites — board games, good food and drinks, and spending time with my amazing co-residents!
Why UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix: I am originally from Utah, and I love the Southwest. Having grown up with family in the Phoenix area, I always loved spending time enjoying all that Arizona has to offer. I love national parks, hiking and being outdoors, so finding a residency with those opportunities was very important to me. The College of Medicine – Phoenix has provided me with a lot of opportunities to continue exploring these interests during my free time. Phoenix itself has a lot of activities, and we are merely a few hours drive from multiple national parks, mountains, skiing and even the ocean! Not to mention having an international airport 10 minutes from the hospital is super convenient. Our leadership and faculty are amazing, but I especially love all of my co-residents. I could feel the collegiality between the residents on my interview day and now being a part of the program myself I can attest to it personally!
