Why did you choose South Campus FM residency?
I am planning on doing full-spectrum, rural family medicine when I graduate, and this is the perfect program for that. With our rural rotations, we not only are prepared for the rigors of full-spectrum practice, but we also get to experience rural practice first hand. We are also in the unique position to practice border medicine, and have faculty experienced in global health to lead our global health track Overall it was a perfect fit for me!
What do you love most about Tucson?
People laugh at me because I am obsessed with Tucson! I just moved here for the residency program, but I’m so glad I did. It’s the perfect size city, in my opinion, and it is so easy to access the beautiful outdoors. There are hiking trails that go up into the mountains walking distance from my house! There are many other things I love about Tucson, but if I had to pick one thing, the accessibility of the outdoors would be it.
