I chose the Latrobe Family Medicine Residency for multiple reasons. The location of the program was perfect for me. Both my husband and I grew up around this area, myself being from Greensburg, Pa. We are really close to our families and so finding a program that was close to home was extremely important to us. The program also offers housing that is within walking distance to the hospital, which, in my opinion, is a huge perk! Latrobe itself is a wonderful area to live in, especially for people who are fans of the outdoors since it is near the Loyalhanna and Youghiogheny Rivers, Linn Run State Park, and roughly an hour from Ohiopyle State Park. Location aside, however, this program was still my Number One choice. I spent time with the program as a medical student and found the program director, attending physicians and resident physicians to be some of the most compassionate, well-rounded and intelligent family medicine physicians I had come by. I also really enjoyed the professional, but down-to-earth attitudes displayed by most of the physicians here. I honestly could not be more thankful for matching with this wonderful program.
