"I chose Latrobe's family medicine program for several reasons. First, I was exposed to it via my third year clerkship during medical school. I found that I really connected with the residents and attendings on both personal and professional levels. I saw firsthand their desire to teach, their compassion for their patients, and the community at large. Secondly, I wanted an unopposed family medicine program that would provide a wide breadth of exposure, which Latrobe is and does. Growing up in a rural northeast Pennsylvania town, I wanted a residency program that would remind me of home growing up. Latrobe offers just that. It is a close knit, rural community where neighbors say hello to each other. Lastly, besides desiring a strong training program, I also wished to be part of a supportive, friendly environment. When I matched at Latrobe, I felt that I had both matched into a strong family medicine program and joined the Latrobe Family Medicine family."
