Vi Dinh, Emergency Medicine Resident, UCSF
My biggest personal and medical educational growth has been during my Emergency Medicine residency at Loma Linda. Having trained at a different institution for medical school, I feel that Loma Linda is unique in its nurturing environment supported by faculty and other staff members. All the residents here get along really well. The motto of Making Man Whole is truly emphasized at our institution with wellbeing and balanced lifestyle as a priority.
Regarding my Emergency Medicine residency, I found the training to be very comprehensive when compared to other residencies. We see all types of patients ranging from young neonates to patients over 100 years old, which is probably due to training in a Blue Zone. Coming from this residency I feel like I am able to handle any situation. Loma Linda definitely gives you that experience.
