It's the intangibles at Gundersen that made my time here so valuable - the confidence, individuality and integrity that is inspired and supported by the people I’ve had the opportunity to work with each day. My co-residents and faculty have seen me at my best and my worst, day in and day out, and truly became like family. I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had here and look forward to seeing what amazing things the team achieves as we all move onward in this ever-changing and challenging field of medicine and surgery.
