Why I Chose CHaD
“I love how CHaD provides a great balance between rigorous academic expectations, and extremely personable and individualized mentorship.

Our smaller size is one of my favorite things, which allows for early autonomy and exposure to subspecialties without the high volume of fellows. This also creates a sense of family between co-interns and staff, and everyone is genuinely kind and supportive!”
