Why did you choose the UC Davis Residency Program?
On my interview day, I loved how friendly and amazing the residents and faculty all were! The size of the program and diversity of the community were perfect for me. Sacramento is also the ideal location – not too big of a city, family nearby, the weather is great, and there’s so much to do around the area!
