Future Plans

I plan to pursue a fellowship in Nephrology. 

Reason for Residency

I choose Riverside IM program because of the excellent teaching.  The attendings are very approachable and supportive.       I thought it was a great combination of a university based center (i.e. various, rare pathologies) with that of a community based facility (not having to compete with Fellows for procedures).   I also thought Riverside fostered a non-malignant learning environment and one which emphasized team-work. I also appreciated the fellowship positions that their residents obtained following completion of the program. Overall, I thought the program would be challenging, but rewarding.
