About Me: About Me: About Me: My family and I grew up in So Cal. I am a husband and a father, and love spending time with my family and friends. Love going hiking, camping and boating out at the nearby trails, campgrounds and lakes, but there are definitely some times I just like hang out at the house after a long day of work. I love playing and watching most sports like basketball, football and golf and always look forward to our weekly resident basketball games. I love trying new foods and Fresno has a wide variety of food cuisines for the food lovers out there.

Why UCSF Fresno?

I am so happy to be a part of this program. I chose this program because of the camaraderie between all of the residents and faculty. Everyone works well with each other and looks forward to seeing each other everyday at and outside work. The faculty are a wealth of knowledge and are excited to share their experiences and knowledge anytime. Teaching rounds are held everyday and are not a threatening pimping session, but an opportunity to learn how to become a better physician. The pathology is very very diverse with not only a varying population at the Community Regional Hospital, but also a unique population at the nearby VA. I want to pursue a fellowship and I know with the research and preparation provided at this program, I have the best opportunity to get the fellowship I desire.
Moving from So Cal to the Central Valley is a huge change for myself and my family, but the Northeast Fresno community is a great environment to raise kids with numerous parks and fantastic schools. There is so much to do, with parks, camps and lakes just few minutes away.

About Me: I'm a real outdoorsman, and enjoy any activity that gets me out in the wild. Surfing. Mountain biking. Skiing. As a recent arrival in California, I couldn't be happier! About Me:   I grew up in Southern California and am big fan of LA sports teams.  In my free time, I like to barbecue, play basketball, racquetball, and go hiking. About Me: ?   I was born and raised in the Central Valley and enjoy competitive sports.  I work on cars as a hobby and love spending time with friends and family.

Why UCSF Fresno?

With a treasure-trove of pathology, world-class facilities, nurturing faculty, and explosive growth, the decision to pursue training at UCSF Fresno was a no-brainer. As a native Peruvian, I can deeply sympathize with a signficant portion of the Fresno patient population, as there is a large Hispanic population in the Central Valley. The housestaff has made me feel welcome ever since my arrival, and I come to work every morning with a smile. Viva UCSF Fresno!

 

Why UCSF Fresno?

I rotated here as a student and immediately felt at home.  Residents, Fellows, and Attendings all get along well and everyone enjoys teaching. CRMC is one of the  major medical centers in Central California and a lot of cases in the region get referred here which makes for great learning opportunities during residency.

Why UCSF Fresno?

I chose UCSF Fresno because the Central Valley (CV) is home.  In my near future I would love to practice in the CV and give back to my community.  Lastly, everyone (administration, ancillary staff, faculty, and house staff) at UCSF Fresno was friendly and profession.  The faculties are top notch and resources are limitless.

Training at UCSF Fresno is giving me the opportunity to experience a great mix of pathology under the guidance of excellent, dedicated faculty who are primarily devoted to clinical teaching.
