Why I chose Kaweah Health:

“The people I met at Kaweah Health were extremely friendly and genuinely interested in getting to know me on a personal level, rather than simply viewing me as a list of professional accomplishments. The idea of joining such a young program also excited me because I knew that I would have an integral role in helping to shape the culture of the residency. Kaweah Health also stood out to me as the only program that insisted on applicants wearing bunny suits over our dress clothes into the OR during our tour, a goofy tradition that we have maintained to help relax everyone on an otherwise stressful day.”

Why I chose Kaweah Health:

“I chose to attend Anesthesia Residency at Kaweah Health because I can train in a smaller community program with underserved populations. There is a lot of academic potential and the amount of clinical exposure is phenomenal. Life outside of residency is well-balanced. I have met colleagues here that will become my life-long friends.”

Why I chose Kaweah Health:

“When I first came to Kaweah Health during the interview season, I was impressed by the passionate, intelligent, and friendly nature of the residents and faculty. Now that I have been at Kaweah Health for several years, my initial impression has not changed. Our anesthesia program is a family that supports each other in and out of the ORs. Training presents countless stressful and challenging situations and it is important to be able to count on your co-residents. Deciding what residency program to rank is a big decision and I wanted to be somewhere with strong clinical exposure, diverse learning, and value of resident input. Kaweah Health’s Anesthesiology Residency is just that.

Why I chose Kaweah Health:

“I was attracted to the Anesthesiology residency at Kaweah Health by early exposure to complex cases, supportive faculty, and a culture that values education. During my MS4 away rotation, I appreciated a collegial environment among residents from all programs. I was excited to learn Kaweah Health has a thriving Cardiac program affiliated with Cleveland Clinic, Neurosciences program affiliated with USC, sim lab with TEE, and educational opportunities for residents performing fellow-level cases. I wanted a culture supportive of fellowship, but one that provides solid training for any practice setting after residency. Importantly, I felt supported in having a family while being a resident at Kaweah Health.

Visalia: Visalia is my hometown! I enjoy our walkable downtown along Main street with many privately owned restaurants just steps from the hospital, clean parks, and views of the Sierra Nevadas. We enjoy weekend trips to the mountains and Central CA coast, or just grilling at home with friends. I am able to afford a house for my family of five with a yard in a safe neighborhood, and have great choices for leisure travel. “

Why I chose Kaweah Health:

"During my interview, I felt a strong sense of camaraderie among the residents and faculty. As a new and tight-knit program, I knew that my education and wellbeing will be a high priority here. I also want to serve those who have limited access to healthcare, and KD is one of the only large healthcare institutions in the area. I’m also an outdoor enthusiast, so KD’s close proximity to national parks such as Yosemite and Sequoia National Park is a major plus!"

Jessica Chan, DO

Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine

Why I chose Kaweah Health:

"I was initially drawn to Kaweah Delta due to close proximity to family, friends, and national parks. That holds true, but I realized that the residency program provides much more with excellent medical training by being the only anesthesiology residency program serving Central California, and welcoming culture that was difficult to come by."

Calvin Nguyen-Ho, MD

Why I chose Kaweah Health:

Why I chose Kaweah Health:

"I chose Kaweah for the excellent faculty, diverse patient population, strong case numbers, and close proximity to my hometown. The lack of traffic and cheap cost of living were attractive features for me. Visalia is in a great spot of the state, close to mountains, the coast, and major cities only a few hours away. Growing up in the Central Valley, I am very excited to return to treat the communities I grew up in."
