Why UC Davis? During my application process and my away rotation, I loved the feel of the entire program. The faculty and residents are all close-knit and do a lot together. The PM&R training is well-balanced and there is truly an emphasis on education here. UC Davis was also a great fit for me because the Sports Medicine exposure and training here are excellent, which align with my interests. Being at UC Davis also gave me the opportunity to return to Northern California to be close to family and friends, as well as to the Sierra Nevadas, which provide endless opportunities to get outside and explore!
