“I chose to do my residency at Good Shepherd Medical Center because I liked the intimate atmosphere and felt like I could grow here personally and professionally. I have had a chance to work very closely with my attendings and have been impressed with the breadth and depth of clinical material from which to learn. Also, being a part of a new program has been a unique and exciting experience. Overall, I feel like I am part of a great team of residents and facility and am developing into a well-rounded physician.”
