Why UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix: With the UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix being a new program, I am pumped to help design and refine the educational curriculum in a way that emphasizes efficient learning, quality patient care and resident well-being. Training at an evolving program will help me adapt as a future interventional radiologist in working in diverse practice settings and creating new ideas and service lines, especially for this field. Also, the location of the program is hard to beat; Phoenix has many recreational activities for active adults (hiking, camping, mountain biking, swimming, etc) without compromising a fun cosmopolitan scene. There is also a lower cost of living here, so it is easier to save, invest and spend!
