Why I Chose Broadlawns for My Residency

I am thankful to be training at Broadlawns for many reasons. With an unopposed residency, we have the opportunity to learn a full-spectrum of medicine to fit any practice. As someone planning to practice in rural Iowa, I know I will be prepared for anything with my education from Broadlawns. We also have a phenomenal support system built in with faculty that are devoted to teaching and fellow residents that make every day enjoyable. Plus, my family appreciates me being so close to home!
