Why I Chose UNC: I chose UNC because each pediatric neurology resident has the opportunity and is encouraged to develop and pursue their own interests. I was pleased that in addition to our Neurology training, there are many resources at UNC to assist us in our education, including strong pediatric training, a pediatric PM&R department, TEACCH and the Carolina Institute of Developmental disabilities, a close relationship with pediatric neurosurgery, genetics/metabolism, and rheumatology/immunology, and strong pediatric psychiatry program. We get the benefit of a huge support system in a little family!

Why I Chose UNC: The strong emphasis on clinical skills and resident teaching are the two top reasons why I chose UNC. The people here at UNC's program are also one of the greatest strengths, among so many others. UNC is able to hone clinical skills while integrating evidence-based practice seamlessly. I was drawn to the diversity of the patients whom we take care of from that are referred here from all over NC, neighboring states, and internationally. Location was also a key factor: temperate weather, driving distance for weekend beach trips, an international airport within 30 minutes, a variety of restaurants, and seated in the growing Triangle metropolitan; UNC is ideally located. Having already spent two years at UNC doing my Pediatric residency in preparation for Child Neurology, I can happily say that UNC was the perfect fit for me, and I would gladly choose it again in a heartbeat!
