Why ORMC: As if the diverse patient population, high-acuity facility with a county/academic/community learning environment, and amazing bedside teaching at ORMC wasn't enough, it is the culture that makes this program so special. The pride for this program is palpable. The supportive and close-knit residents, encouraging staff, and approachable faculty make this more than a residency program, it makes it a family.  I know that after three years of training, I will leave confident and prepared for anything that lies ahead, with unending support from my new family of EM rockstars.
