Since arriving here, everyone I’ve met is very friendly and eager to help. I’m happy to become part of this program since I desire working with an excellent group of faculty and residents in a great learning environment. Hopefully I’ll also be able to take advantage one of Boston’s popular offerings, seafood, especially lobster!
