Why do you enjoy working at AFP?

I love watching residents mature through their three years of training. I enjoy helping them develop joy in learning the core knowledge of family medicine and OMT skills that help DO and MD residents assist patients along with helping medical students discover the joy of family medicine! The friendships with faculty, residents, and staff are what keep me at AFP!
