Why did you choose South Campus FM residency?
I chose this residency for several reasons. First, I really liked all the residents and attendings during my interview day. They were all down-to-earth and obviously committed to serving our underserved population. Second, with the rural rotations and variety of other rotations, I knew the training would be good -- it is. Third, my wife’s family are all in Tucson. It’s great having them around, especially for my daughter.
What do you love most about Tucson?
Having family around, outdoorsy activities, nice weather (for part of the year), good food, relaxed vibe.
