Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: I rotated in the ChristianaCare ED during my fourth year of medical school. During the month, I came to love the culture I was immersed in. The residents were welcoming and inclusive, the faculty supportive and encouraging, and the patient population diverse. I knew this was the program that would challenge me and help me become the physician I want to be.
