I chose SMEF because I completed a rotation with them and really enjoyed my time with the residents and faculty. I formed a great connection with the residents and really felt like they took me in to their “family.” I am interested in rural medicine and the unopposed training at SMEF provides a great foundation, as well as, the skills and experience necessary to practice in a rural area. Also, I wanted a program that provided healthcare for an under- served population and SMEF participates in community health as well as prenatal care for patients on the reservations. After spending a month with SMEF, I felt the environment was very positive, supportive, and the perfect fit for me!
