Why did you choose Michigan's residency program?

Michigan Medicine’s reputation and strong residency program really appealed to me, as did the opportunity to get an MBA at Ross School of Business. I was ultimately drawn to the supportive team culture that I noticed among the staff and residents. Plus, having family in the area is a nice bonus!
