Why Carolinas Medical Center?
There were many reasons why I chose Carolinas Medical Center. We have amazing preceptors invested in resident learning and a strong, forward-thinking stewardship department. There are also a wide variety of ID learning opportunities including inpatient, outpatient and teaching experiences. The city of Charlotte also influenced my decision.
