Why I chose UCLA: Over 4 years of residency, UCLA really became my second family. There is wonderful comradery amongst the residents/fellows and the attending faculty are amazing teachers and mentors. UCLA gave me the opportunity to subspecialize in what I love AND support me as I transition to attending in the main OR. Why wouldn't I stay?
