“The members of LVHN are like a family that acts to guide and support everyone in their medical journey.”

What makes your LVHN training program different from others across the country?

LVHN is dedicated to both the learning process and wellness of each resident physician. With structured teaching services, didactics and research opportunities, residents are provided with the highest level of dedicated learning opportunities. Additionally, the members of LVHN are like a family that acts to guide and support everyone in their medical journey.

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

The most unique part of the resident experience at LVHN has been the great amount of support from every member of the faculty and staff. Both our colleagues and members of program leadership have made themselves available from the first day of orientation to aid in our endeavors.

What is one memory you have from your training so far that will stick with you for your career?

Starting in the intensive care unit as a first-year resident can be a daunting task. I will always be thankful for the support I had from the senior residents during this transition, especially those who were on other services. I appreciate all the practical advice and knowledge that has been shared. 

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

As you begin your medical career, you will spend a large chunk of time with your colleagues in the hospital. It is important to pick a program where the atmosphere and culture leave a positive impact on you. Also, it is important to keep your end-career goals in mind and look at the opportunities provided by the hospitals you are applying to. For example, if you have a dream of applying to a fellowship, you should consider looking to see if a program has in-house fellowships. I found both qualities in LVHN and am very thankful to be training with this health care system.

What does it mean to be a resident at LVHN?

Being a resident at LVHN means having a family of support behind you as you advance through your medical career. During your time at LVHN, you will make professional and personal connections that will last a lifetime.
