“I love my Pedi program because we are truly accepting of everyone! Finding a program that was inclusive and culturally sensitive was very important to me and I definitely feel that here. In our program, learning and growing into the best Pediatrician I can be is comfortable and exciting. We truly live by the statement, ‘Teamwork makes the dream work!’
