Why did you choose UMMC?: Ultimately it was my second look that sealed the deal for me. The Med Peds residents are an amazing group of people. Everyone here was so welcoming. Mississippi is also number one in everything you don't want to be number one in, so I knew I would have the ability to learn from some of the most complex patients here.

Facetiming my nieces and nephews, running, cat naps with my cats, watching the bachelorette/bachelor and schooling my co-residents in bags (or as you all call it in the south "corn hole").
