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-physician 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!
