Why I chose UH Regional: I chose UH Regional because of the community feel of both the hospital and the residency program as a whole. There is unparalleled exposure to excellent pediatric rotations at UHRBC; the range of experiences throughout the UH system (from academic to community to rural settings and from inpatient to ambulatory environments) provides a very comprehensive scope to the medical field; and the program as a whole (from scheduling to administration faculty) is supportive of each individual goal and thus works with you to personally make the most of your education and training. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive program!
