Why RCH/UCR? Beyond the likeability and general sense of confidence I gathered from
the residents during my interview and second look, I found Riverside to
be a place where I knew I could have a huge impact. As a fairly new program
in the ED world, I knew I could come here and find ways to untap the shear
potential this program has to offer the incoming resident class and beyond.
I've been in NYC almost 10 years now and Riverside is bringing me back
to the place I used to call home. I am originally from Los Angeles and
the chance to be near family and almost perfect weather all year around
was a huge draw for me. I am moving to the area with my Husband and yorkie.
As one of the busiest ED's in California, I know am I going to come into
work with a purpose everytime I step through the door.
