Best thing about the Univ. of Chicago?
The staff we have is great to work with, we also have very helpful anesthesia techs. The people you work with everyday can really make or break your work environment, especially during a challenging case or stressful situation. You feel well supported at UofC.

Where do you live in Chicago (area of the city) and if you like that area, why?
I live in the south loop! it is only about a 10 minute drive in the AM to the hospital which is great, but its still around all the museums and aquariums and a close walk to a lot of city activities. There are also a lot of restaurants, grocery stores, shops etc in the south loop with parking readily available which makes errands convenient. I've also recently discovered some great parks during the summer chicago weather!
