Why Kaiser? When applying for residency programs, I realized that I wanted to work and train in an environment such as Kaiser where preventative care is prioritized and implemented in patient-provider interactions. On my interview day, I was drawn to the collaborative atmosphere and sense of community amongst the Kaiser LA IM house staff and attendings. I appreciated that curiosity and clinical inquiry were encouraged. My experience so far has been great and I’m happy to be a part of the Kaiser LA community!

Why Kaiser? When choosing a residency program, three things mattered the most to me: cultural fit, exceptional teaching and post-residency career prospect. I had the privilege to rotate through Kaiser multiple times as a UCLA medical student and experienced first-hand the devotion to patient center care, commitment to evidence based medicine and consistent program support for resident wellness. I knew that I not only wanted to be a part of such a residency program, but I also wanted to stay and work within the same organization.

Why Kaiser? When applying for residency, I knew I wanted 3 things from a program, and Kaiser LAMC fit the bill exactly: 1) A moderate size program that emphasizes education - our program goes out of its way to make education a priority; from reviewing landmark articles during rounds, bedside clinical and ultrasound teaching, and dedicated morning and lunchtime conferences, never a day goes by that I don’t learn something new! 2) A program with an excellent fellowship match rate - I’m interested in pursuing fellowship after residency and over the recent years our program has had a 100% match rate. KP LAMC is the tertiary hospital for KP Southern California, therefore we have many fellowship programs already in place here, providing residents with opportunities to make connections and set ourselves up for fellowship. 3) Most importantly, I wanted to be part of a FAMILY. Residency is already tough on its own, and having program co-residents support one another is the main reason why I chose to come to Kaiser. Not only this, our program is one where our leadership (Dr. Tom, Dr. Subject, Dr. Chee, and our amazing current and past Chief Residents) encourages residents to voice their opinions in order to make meaningful changes. In fact, over the past year major changes have already been made purely based on resident feedback. Overall, we all love and support each other here at KP LAMC - my co-residents are some of the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing! I couldn’t imagine my residency anywhere else.

Why Kaiser? It’s the only healthcare system in LA that takes care of patients from head to toe, in every setting. Kaiser really invests in their patients’ wellness, not just their illness.
