Why did you choose UH?: Ever since my interview day, I knew this program was my “perfect fit.” I was blown away by the strong camaraderie between the residents, the faculty's enthusiasm to teach, and the overall positive and welcoming atmosphere. This is a dynamic program that truly values and listens to its residents, and that was evident from the beginning. Cleveland is also a great city! It has everything you find in other major cities (sports, food, art, theater, culture, etc.), but it's also super affordable to live here…win-win situation!
