Ever since rotating at JPS as a medical student I was blown away by the program and amazing people here. I have made lifelong friends with my colleagues and JPS family. JPS offers a huge catchman area where you can really make a difference in this county population. It offers a unique training environment where you are able to take complete ownership of your patients both in the ED and off service rotations such as ICU. I can’t imagine having trained anywhere else and feel so lucky to have had this opportunity, which I know has prepared me for all my future clinical, educational, and administrative endeavors!
