Why family medicine: I really enjoy dermatology and procedures, maternal-child health, geriatrics and home visits, inpatient and outpatient work, and preventive health… leaving my options for training in these areas “limited” to family medicine!

Why MMC: I was looking for a small/medium sized program with a variety of learning opportunities, a strong sense of camaraderie, and a learning track with women’s health.

Favorite things about Portland: The many, many delicious restaurants, coffee shops, and bars. I love that it is close to lakes and the ocean and also close to bigger cities like Boston.
