Why Iowa

I chose Iowa because of the program’s longstanding reputation for preparing residents to excel in academic medical careers, the collaborative research environment, the early exposure to neurocritical care beginning during PGY-1 in the SNICU, and perhaps most importantly, my enjoyable interactions with residents and faculty and the tangible camaraderie between them. As an added bonus, I love the college town setting that comes complete with top-notch sports! (Let’s go Hawks!)
