#WhyIChoseUAB: UAB has such a diverse patient population with very sick patients. I knew I’d get great training dealing with sick patients and feel comfortable wherever I end up following residency. Also the people are just awesome

Favorite part of the program/UAB or something you love about it: Super cliche, but the residents. I made great relationships on multiple med student rotations and couldn’t see myself anywhere else
Favorite rotation and why: Hard to say, but anything that’s in the OR after intern year
My neighborhood and why I like it: Oxmoor Glen, it’s about 15 minutes away from the hospital in a quiet location that’s close to lots of different restaurants
