Why I Enjoy Family Medicine Residency:
As a psychologist, I integrate research and clinical skills in an ongoing therapeutic relationship with my patients. I really enjoy seeing my patients change which positively influences their personal, spiritual and social life.
I love teaching behavioral medicine because it is rewarding to participate in the residents’ development and impact the way they relate to patients. I love watching them improve the way they communicate with their patients. I’m inspired to realize that whole-person care training can influence the residents’ relationships with patients and families for a long time. Interaction with the residents, the patients and faculty is a dynamic learning process. This is a joy because it stimulates me to keep up-to-date, and grow personally and professionally.
