Residency Reflection: I came to IU for residency because of the large Med/Peds community. The amazing clinical opportunities in both adult medicine and pediatrics were also a huge draw to our program. The Med/Peds program at Indiana University has far exceeded my expectations. The exposure to various subspecialties allowed me to discover my interest in caring for young adults with chronic liver disease! I have met amazing mentors, both in Med/Peds and in gastroenterology. The program leadership has been very supportive of resident goals. Our program directors were instrumental in helping me create a unique combined Med/Peds GI clinic experience in my PGY4 year. The opportunities to teach amazing medical students have solidified my decision to pursue clinician educator work in my career. I feel extremely prepared for life beyond residency due to the exceptional training in our program. In addition, I know I will graduate from our residency with lifelong friendships. I hope you find a residency "family" like I found at IU!
