“I am so thankful to have matched to Huntington Hospital – I could not have asked for a better program to train at. Everyone here is so kind and wants you to succeed, from co-residents to attendings and consultants. This is so important to me because I thrive and learn best in an environment of compassion. The training is very solid and now as a second year resident I feel proud that I’m well equipped to manage my list independently. Yes we do have 24 hour calls but those nights are when I learn and grow from the most. And the cherry on top is that there is a great work life balance here and I have time for my family and friends outside of work.”

“The opportunities unique to Huntington Hospital are countless. We are a community hospital in a dynamic community with direct access to major metropolitan tertiary referrals. We have an abundance of world-class physicians, many of whom are affiliated with major Universities. A staff small enough that everyone is on a first name basis, but large enough that most major specialities are immediately available. Huntington Hospital is a wonderful balance of personalized patient care bonded to a high level of technology.

We get to reap all the benefits of being at a small residency program and a big hospital including case volume, diverse pathology, and hands-on experience. I feel very lucky to call my colleagues here my new family and Pasadena my home away from home.”

“Pasadena is a great location in Southern California, it is near the mountains and the beaches so there are a lot of outdoor activities to do all year long. The community surrounding the hospital and Old Town Pasadena are very nice and quaint, and they are located very close to downtown Los Angeles which has amazing restaurants and great night life.”
