Why did you choose UMMC?: After spending time with multiple programs as a student, UMMC was the one place where all of the residents and faculty truly felt like a "family." Having been born and raised in MS, almost every physician I've ever met or worked with was UMMC trained. I knew from my interactions with them that I wanted to experience that same level of medical education.

What do you like about the program?
Well-rounded faculty members who specialize in areas ranging from geriatrics to sports medicine and who truly enjoy teaching residents. One-on-one rotations with preceptors in the 2nd and 3rd years of residency that include anything from cardiology, nephrology, psychiatry, and endocrinology. An unopposed, community-based inpatient service run by our own department.
