Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: I wanted to continue my academic training at ChristianaCare because of the emphasis on cultural competence, care integration, and leadership training opportunities. I was also excited to get specialty track integrated training within the Heart and Vascular Health/Primary Care rotation. The culture within the hospital is incredibly warm and welcoming which is really comforting in such are large system. I'm confident ChristianaCare will prepare me well in my goal to become a clinical health psychologist.
