    Why UMMS?: I chose UMass Medical School because of the sense of community I felt during the interview day along with the exceptional training provided to the residents. Worcester's central geographic location and the fact that it is the second largest city in New England meant that I would be exposed to a diverse patient population with a wide range of clinical complexity. In addition, the anesthesiology program is unique in that it offers a well-rounded intern year in both surgery and medicine. So far, my experience here has exceeded my expectations.
