Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: There are so many reasons I chose Christiana Care! But first and foremost I would have to say the people. I continue to be wowed by all the people I meet here. Dr. Friedland, Dr. Bianchetta, and the rest of the Med-Peds faculty are incredibly supportive. The other residents here are amazing; it really does feel like a family. There are so many opportunities for learning, and you get to train at great institutions on both the medicine and pediatrics side. You really get the sense here that you will be more than well-prepared for whatever you plan on doing after residency. I've enjoyed the Christiana Mall (no sales tax!), the beautiful parks, being close to Philly, Baltimore, and the Delaware beaches. And the traffic here is way better than what I was used to in Philly.
