Why RCH/UCR? I absolutely loved my interview day at RCH/UCR. Everyone was very pleasant
and it was great to hear from all the residents how Dr. Guldner and the
rest of the EM faculty care so much about the wellbeing of the residents.
Additionally, I am excited about having an impact on, and shaping the
new EM program at Riverside Community Hospital.
What do you like about living in Riverside? First and foremost I will be close to family. The Riverside area is one
of the few affordable locations in Southern California but is still very
close to the coast. I’m looking forward to get to know the area
better in the next few years.
