Why I Chose McLeod: The McLeod Residency Program is a good fit for me because I am interested in full-scope, hands-on medicine. I knew from my first visit, the people of McLeod are warm and welcoming, and the hospital is a comfortable environment. As a new intern, I recognize how residents have the chance to speak up and make a difference. All of these attributes are important to me, and I am thankful to have been chosen by McLeod.
