Why CMC?: I had the opportunity to do an away rotation at CMC during my fourth year. I immediately knew this was the place for me. I had never met such an encouraging, hardworking, smart, and truly welcoming bunch. Between the people and the phenomenal training, I was confident I had found my home for the next four years.

Why CMC?: Finding a place where I felt I would fit in was the most important criterion for me when deciding on a residency program. I was impressed by what CMC had to offer as far as the facilities, the faculty, and learning opportunities, but more importantly, I had a gut feeling about the residents and about Charlotte!

Why CMC?: CMC was my first interview on the interview trail and it set a great tone for the rest of the interview season. I enjoyed the enthusiasm of Dr. Boardman and the mixture of academics and community-style aspects of CMC. I left knowing that I would be trained as a competent and patient-centered OBGYN at CMC.

Why CMC?: On the interview day, the program felt like family where everyone cared about each other not only as learners, but also as people. The faculty and residents were welcoming and genuinely enjoyed each other's company. I could tell that the environment produced competent OBGYNs and that the faculty would support the residents to get where they wanted to go. Charlotte is a great city and I'm looking forward to living here!

Why CMC?: I chose CMC because I couldn't imagine myself being happy anywhere else. The residents are incredibly smart, driven, and skilled surgeons while also being some of the kindest and most fun people I've ever met. The faculty are also very supportive and foster a healthy learning environment, while pushing you to be better every day. I knew that CMC was a place where I could become the OBGYN I've always wanted to be.

Why CMC?: As a 4th year medical student, everyone tells you that during interview season, you'll have this 'feeling' and then you'll know. I didn't believe that was a thing...until I visited CMC's campus! The residents are a true family, the faculty are warm and welcoming, and the hospital treats residents as valued employees with great benefits. And outside of CMC's campus, Charlotte is a huge, thriving city filled with cool neighborhood and good eats. It's one of the fastest growing cities in the US and a large portion of that growth is young professionals.

Granted, I have only been here for a few weeks, but I can confidently say that I am so honored, excited, and relieved to have matched here at CMC! From the day that I stepped foot on campus for my interview, I could feel the family connection that the residents shared through their time training at CMC. And making that even better, the attending physicians who interviewed me showed a collegial, non-hierarchical approach to resident learning that fostered an incredible environment for growth that I just HAD to be a part of! I love the group of resident that I've matched with, we felt super close just after one week of orientation together. I am very excited for what's ahead over the next 4 years here!
