“I chose Wright Center for its smaller community-based program in Washington DC, a city rich in culture, diversity and its proximity to my family. I also chose this program for its commitment to improving healthcare outcomes in under-served communities, regardless of the ever-changing climate of medicine.”

“I wanted to complete my training in a larger city where I could focus on outpatient treatment in the under-served community. I liked how the residents expressed a sense of family, and how everyone encouraged and supported each other. I felt that this was the best opportunity for me to develop and flourish as an osteopathic physician, as well as a good location for my family.”
