Why TMC: I interviewed at Tufts Medical Center and was swooned by the legitimately fun interview day / Chinese lunch. I could tell I was going to fit in with the types of residents that were here, and when you are working with people you like it doesn’t feel like work!
Why Boston: It’s a fun, young and cerebral city where nerds can thrive. Spoiler: if you’re applying to internal medicine, you are some form of nerd - might as well embrace it!
