The diversity of our hospitals, commitment to teaching by our faculty, and strong training in ultrasound, telemedicine and prehospital care are all major positives of our program. However, the chemistry and camaraderie among faculty, residents and office staff in our residency really sets this program apart. The impact of a such a positive atmosphere in the program is immeasurable.
I have lived for varying amounts of time in the DC area, Hawaii, Europe and Texas. I have also spent extended time in Florida, Colorado and Arizona. Ten years ago, I chose to move my family to Buffalo for our permanent home.
Along with choosing Emergency Medicine for a career, that choice has had a great impact on our quality of life. The Buffalo Niagara region is very livable, combining the social/cultural benefits of a city with the ease and friendliness of small town living.
