About Me: I am a food fanatic... I appreciate trying new foods and learning about different cultures. I enjoy traveling, watching movies, and cooking for friends and family (currently I am in the process of mastering my grill).

About Me: I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and playing my favorite sports (volleyball, basketball, and badminton).

Why UCSF Fresno?  As one of the busiest hospitals in the state of California, UCSF Fresno offers the wide scope of pathology that comes with a large and diverse population, but in a desirable community-like setting. Just as importantly, the knowledgeable faculty is kind and motivated to teach and share their expertise with the residents and other trainees. There was no doubt in my mind I wanted to be here after rotating here as a student.

Why UCSF Fresno? I ranked UCSF Fresno number one on my list for a number of reasons.  The faculty, residents, and staffs were among the friendliest and most supportive group of people I met during the interview trail.  They left quite an impression during and after my interview day.  The IM program at UCSF Fresno provides ample opportunities for its residents to pursue a career in general medicine or post-residency training in the desirable fellowships.  It's perfect for candidates who are still undecided whether to pursue a fellowship or not, as well as candidates who have set their mind on a certain fellowship such as cardiology, gastroenterology, pulm/critical care, ID, heme/onc (in 2016), etc.

About Me: My favorite social pastimes include hiking, backpacking, and enjoying different types of cuisine. National Parks and food make me very happy! 

About Me: I love sports.  I enjoy playing soccer, hockey, and watching college football on Saturdays (whenever we I have time that is). I love the outdoors and therefore this is a great place to be.

Why UCSF Fresno? There are so many wonderful aspects about this program that I noticed as a student during my audition rotation. I was very excited to come here because the teaching rounds were amongst the best I have experienced.  I loved how closely we worked with attendings and subspecialists alike. It was also very encouraging to see how knowledgeable residents were when it came to evidence based medicine and managing complicated patients.  It gave me great confidence about the solid training provided by UCSF Fresno.

Why UCSF Fresno?  I completed a rotation as a student here, and truly enjoyed working with the residents and faculty members.  Now as a resident I enjoy working with my co-residents, and we have wonderful faculty members.
