Why I chose this program/Grand Rapids for my training

After first rotating here as a visiting medical student, I was extremely impressed by the overall resident training and experience at GRMEP. The faculty are great to work with and invested in resident education. Residents genuinely care about one another and work well together. There is an extremely high case volume and a broad exposure to the various areas within plastic surgery. Hospital facilities are up to date and in many cases state of the art. Grand Rapids is a wonderful place for my wife and I to raise our two small boys.
