Welcome from the Chief Residents!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our site. We are excited about your interest in our program. Needless to say, all four of us LOVE this program; after all, we did choose to stay here an additional year! That decision was an easy one, as over the past three years this hospital has become our home. But beyond the extraordinary medical training that we received here, it was the family that grew out of the caring environment of Loma Linda Children’s Hospital that made the difference. The individuals in this program--from program director to attending physicians, bedside nurses to case managers--all are invested in you. They believe in you and it shows through their actions, words, hugs and prayers.

This program has far surpassed what we thought we were getting when we started residency. It has been more than a place to receive excellent training, outstanding teaching and exceptional exposure to a variety of patients. It has been the avenue through which we achieved our goals, and a setting that provided the nurturing family that we could not have survived without.

Many people choose residency based on location, size of program, research opportunities, and a variety of other reasons. These are all good things to consider, yet even with all of this factual knowledge, we still have no way of really telling how life will be once ERAS has stamped our fate. We urge you to explore these pages and find out what we are about. Contact us, we would love to tell you more about our program. Come and see us, it would be our pleasure to show you around. We look forward to getting to know you and discovering if we would be your perfect match!

Good Luck!
Mary, Lindsay, Jessica and Stephanie
