What are your favorite things to do in the Denver area? Going to local breweries and restaurants, going to sporting events in the city, making it out to the mountains to hike whenever I get a chance.

What is the biggest strength of our program? The University of Colorado provides some of the best breadth of training in the country with amazing faculty in every subspecialty. Faculty are extremely approachable and invested in your training. I grew up and went to school in the Midwest, so I was excited to experience a new area of the country.
