Why University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics

I chose University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics because of the people I met during recruitment. Everyone had such positive things to say about UI Hospitals & Clinics, and I am experiencing that first-hand now! I was also impressed by the PEPPR teaching program. I am excited to learn how to teach and apply what I learn from the teaching program in the classroom.

I also chose University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics because of the Executive Master of Health Administration program. I am looking forward to learning alongside other health-care professionals from strong leaders in healthcare.

Favorite Part of Iowa City

I have loved all of the outdoor activities in Iowa City so far. There are excellent trails throughout and around the city. There are also great festivals downtown throughout the summer. Additionally, I have enjoyed exploring all of the local restaurants with my co-residents!
