Get to know Faris Albakoaa, MD, family medicine resident.

Career goal: Geriatric care

“Training at LVHN provides you with a uniquely supportive environment.”

What makes your LVHN training program different than other programs across the country?

I am interested in providing elderly people with comprehensive medical care, helping them to live independently as possible in the community. Training at LVHN provides you with a uniquely supportive environment.

What has been the most extraordinary part of your training experience so far? 

I think the most valuable part of my training experience so far is working in a rural community, which immerses me into the everyday life of my patients.

What is one piece of advice you would share with someone as they select a training program?

My advice to anyone choosing the residency program is to look into the people they will work with, and I can say I was lucky to get the team I had at LVHN. I am looking forward to becoming an active member in the bigger LVHN team.
