  • A primary care experience in the community with full inclusion into a pediatric practice
  • A large catchment area with a diverse patient population (including ethnic, language, socioeconomic, urban/rural diversity)
  • A full spectrum of subspecialty, global health, research and teaching opportunities
  • A vibrant city enjoying a food, cultural and sports renaissance, while still offering a low cost of living and close proximity to state parks, mountains, lakes and easy access to larger metropolitan areas
