Why you chose Inova and program pluses: I chose Inova because of the location, the wide spectrum of cases and caring people I met on interview day. Being in the DC metro area is incredible. There is anything and everything to do all year-round, which was important to me as I tried to find a place that would give me a healthy balance of life at work and life outside of it. I love that I’m not only able to become an experienced and well-rounded pediatrician, but I can simultaneously sort out my future goals without limitation. Most importantly, I wanted to be surrounded by people who cared about my education, as well as who I was as a person. I have found that, here at Inova, the staff strive every day to give me the tools to be a great physician, as well as peers who support me every step of the way.
