|What Drew you to Program
||The tight-knit nature and down to earth vibe of the residents was evident from the pre-interview dinner. I was also impressed with the level of support and flexibility built into the program.
|What do you Love About the Program
||There is something extra special about the culture at Penn. My favorite co-applicants, with whom I really clicked during various stops along the interview trail, all ended up matching here. My class is a concentration of brilliant, caring, and hilarious people!
This sense of teamwork permeates through every aspect of the program—from the leadership’s commitment to wellness to the naturally supportive interactions I have with the attendings. If these types of things are important to you in residency, then you are at the right place.
||I’m considering a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology, but am looking forward to exploring other things!
|What do you Love About Philly
||The numerous unique beer gardens (both permanent, and “pop-up” in the city’s various parks), museums (the Mutter museum of medical oddities being a favorite), restaurants (too many to name, but during your interview day, stop by Reading Terminal Market), festivals, farmers markets and outdoor spaces have kept me busy!
