Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: I did an away rotation and fell in love with the place. The ED is busy, and there an unbelievable amount of pathology at your finger tips. I also loved that there are no surgical sub-specialty residency programs here. We are taking care of broken bones, dislocated joints, eye complaints, etc. The support and opportunities to experience different styles of emergency medicine also drew me to Christiana. We get to practice in an urban community ED, a tertiary care ED, and a free standing rural ED. And above all else, Christiana felt like home with a large supportive family.
