“I wanted a well-rounded program where I could get a lot of hands-on opportunities. I saw that firsthand with the residents here that I followed as a med student. They had lots of hands on opportunities. In addition, I looked for a program where my attendings and supervisors were very approachable. The faculty here made that very easy for me. And so I think when you feel comfortable around people who are instructing you, you feel more comfortable asking questions and the learning is is much greater.” Brittin Thibodeaux, MD
