Why NYC? Having lived in Texas and the Midwest, I wanted to move to a city where I could get the training that I needed but also raise a family. I actually live in NJ, but the commute to work is < 30 minutes and my family loves living there. I enjoy coming to the city to hangout with my co-fellows and my old medical school friends!
