Why I chose Broadlawns for my residency?
Broadlawns was my top choice residency program. I rotated here as a medical student and was extremely impressed by the comprehensive full-spectrum Family Medicine training at Broadlawns as an unopposed program. Family medicine residents run all the services in the hospital, including L&D, which is of particular interest to me. Additionally, the residents and faculty are very teaching-oriented and approachable, and I knew I’d feel well supported here as I navigate my new role as a doctor. Finally, as a new mother who was breastfeeding and pumping during my rotation, the program was extremely accommodating and supportive. This, accompanied by the fact that many of the residents are parents and/or have had children during residency, made me feel like Broadlawns would be a good fit for me, and the type of environment I wish to train in.
Trying new foods and finding new restaurants, traveling, learning new languages – I am fluent in Hebrew and English, studied Arabic for 8 years, and currently learning Spanish.
Favorite thing to do in Des Moines?
I’m new to Des Moines, so I’m looking forward to exploring the various Farmers’ Markets around town and attending the Iowa State Fair this summer!
