ImpactThrough Education and Leadership 24 Medical School MATTHEW CHAPMAN University of Michigan Medical School M.D. Candidate Class of 2018 As a student, it is a daunting task to decide where to pursue a medical education prior to matriculation. In hindsight, I don’t think I would be happier anywhere other than the University of Michigan. While training at such a large and prestigious institution has prepared me adequately for life as a physician, it has been work- ing alongside Michigan-trained residents and faculty which truly distinguish Michigan. From interested faculty teaching bed-side ultrasound techniques, to the residents who willingly collaborated with me on research, the culture at Michigan has provided me with the opportunities to succeed moving forward. Furthermore, the guidance and interest in me as a learner from many EM faculty and residents has fostered my own interest in Emergency Medicine.The faculty and residents here at Michigan are the ones that honestly make the difference.The Michigan Difference. Go Blue! Residency ARUN GANTI, MD I chose the University of Michigan for my residency training because of the location, diverse patient population, and world class faculty. Ann Arbor is a wonderful city for young professionals and fami- lies alike with lots of options for dining, entertainment, and outdoor activities. To me, Ann Arbor has all the benefits of a big city without many of the stressors. Living here has significantly improved my wellness as a resident. The three site model of our residency provides a breath of patient population and practice environment unlike any other program I interviewed at. The faculty are a pleasure to work with and constantly push us to think critically and evidence-based medicine is at the core of our department. As I move on from my training of four years, three sites, two colors and one goal I am ready for anything!! 1996 FOUR-YEAR RESIDENCY PROGRAM STARTED 64 SLOTS 253 GRADUATES 180+ MEDICAL STUDENT ROTATORS 10 SUBSPECIALTY TRACKS 100% PLACEMENT 100% BOARD PASS RATE 3 HOSPITALS IN HOSPITAL AND OUTDOOR SETTINGS
