Why did you choose Valley Children's Pediatric Residency Program?
I chose Valley Children's Pediatric Residency Program because I felt that the program's mission statement strongly resonated with my future goals as a future physician. Valley Children's Healthcare is so unique in the fact that every member of the Valley Children's Healthcare team is so important and highly valued as a team member. I truly felt at home the moment I stepped into the hospital.
