    Why Utah?

    I chose to do triple board after discovering my interest in pediatric psycho-oncology and C/L psychiatry, and chose Utah primarily because of how excited the faculty seemed to support and develop these interests! I also loved that psychiatrists and psychologists work together on the child C/L team, was impressed by the strong pediatric advocacy curriculum, and most of all enjoyed talking with the people I met on interview day. Being here in person has confirmed that the supportive, welcoming environment I had sensed over Zoom was real, and I can’t wait to train alongside such a great group of people. Finally, after 8 years of school in Texas, being close to the mountains again was definitely a plus.
