Reason for Residency

My mentor was a resident here, which was my initial motivator.  On my interview, I felt that the residents treated one another like family and really had a good time together.  Riverside is a very strong academic program with good surgical volume.  Everyone here is great!

Like/Dislikes About Columbus

Too many reasons to count, but overall because we are a family here.  I always know that I can count on a fellow resident, attending, nurse, etc to have my back when the going gets tough.
