What if I want to come and visit your hospital; how can I arrange this?

We are currently not set up to have students do a "rotation" with us; however, we can have you come by to "shadow" one of our current attendings. This will allow you to see the hospital and meet some of our attendings. Please email our residency coordinator to set this up in advance. Contact information is listed below.
