“It was clear to me from the interview day that the residents on both the pediatrics and neurology side of things felt a strong sense of community and were a source of support for each other, and both departments made me feel like I would be "one of them." The residents (of both departments) also clearly had a good relationship with the attendings. Of course SB would give me the breadth and depth of training to succeed but being able to do so with your co-residents helping and supporting you makes the journey more robust and rewarding.”

” What I liked most about the program was that it was just the right size, small enough that it felt like a family but I also had autonomy, learned a great deal from both child and adult neurology attendings and I eventually found my niche in child neurology (neuro-immunology).”
