Why USF: I USF for several reasons, with one of the biggest being the residents.They are laid back, easy to get along with, and willing to help.  Another big reason was that we have access to every type of practice setting (VA/Government, Private, Academic/Cancer center) with world renowned attendings. This is unique to our program and allows us to get a true feel for all of the practice settings. The fact that there are so many things to do in the area and that the weather is great are two big bonuses.
