Why U of A at South Campus: The faculty and residents are all passionate about family medicine and made me feel welcome and at home. The residency itself provides amazing opportunities to pursue my interests in medicine and has an awesome focus on the under-served and rural populations of Arizona. It also helped that coming to Tucson meant returning to my home state and living in a great city.

How do you envision your future in family medicine and what are you most passionate about? There are so many possibilities in family medicine it's almost impossible to guess where I'll go after residency, but I'm especially passionate about women's health and adolescent medicine.
