Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I chose Michigan Medicine because of their focus on creating well-rounded residents. From my interview, I experienced a warm and welcoming environment that has continued throughout the residency year. I also love having large PGY-1 and PGY-2 classes - having almost 30 co-residents is the best!
