Why Colorado? I had never been to Colorado, but really felt on my interview day that this program cared about my personal development and how that would influence my professional identity. The residency here at Colorado is full of intelligent and driven clinicians, but they are all outstanding human beings first. Even in the first few months of residency, I feel like I've found people I know I will call friends for a lifetime, and that was important for me in choosing a program. 


Why Colorado? I was struck by how intelligent, kind, hard-working, and fun the residents and faculty are! The chance to learn at both CHCO and Denver Health, coupled with the ability to get into the mountains for hiking or skiing in a jiffy, made Colorado an outstanding choice for residency. As a bonus, we’re lucky to have wonderful family and friends here!Why Colorado? I chose Colorado for the people and the place! I felt so welcomed on my virtual social/interview day and everyone I met was so kind and genuine. Since starting at Colorado, I have felt incredibly supported by the chiefs, program leadership, but especially my co-residents. I'm inspired by the people I work with every day and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else for residency! Colorado is an absolutely beautiful place to live and there is always something fun to do outdoors.
