Why they chose SIU
My first exposure to the SIU Division of Plastic Surgery was as a visiting medical student. Everyone was incredibly welcoming, and the camaraderie between faculty, residents, and staff created an excellent learning environment. I saw that resident education was a top priority – evidenced both by the instruction that occurred in the operating room as well as a strong didactic curriculum. I was impressed by MCLI, with space dedicated to resident skill development, as well as a research lab equipped with staff members that are available to assist the residents at any stage of their projects. I knew I wanted to join the SIU plastics family by the end of my rotation, and I am truly thankful for the opportunity to train here.
