Why I Chose MCW: I aspired to train in a dermatology residency program where I could be a part of a strong academic institution, see a variety of skin and hair types, learn from attendings with renowned expertise, feel a sense of diversity and cultural competency, and become part of a close-knit group. On my interview day, it was clear to me that MCW had all of these parts - and so much more to offer!
