Aside from bringing an amazing array of experiences to their work, they also come from a wide array of places. If you visit our program, please talk to as many of our residents as you can. They will tell you why they chose Penn and what they like/dislike about the program. In the end, these are the people you will be working with everyday. If you feel at home interacting with them, Penn may be the place for you.
