Why you chose MFMR: I was originally excited about MFMR because it allowed me to get back to my home state of Montana. Then, when I came to interview, I fell in love the people and community here. As I interacted with faculty, staff, and residents during my interview, this felt like home. I also knew MFMR would thoroughly prepare me to serve as a competent and effective family medicine physician in whatever situation my future career will place me. In addition, the opportunities to pursue two of my passions, the Wilderness Medicine Fellowship and Sports Medicine, were major factors. Finally, I love the fact that they are based in a community health clinic and have rural health opportunities.
