Why I chose this program/Grand Rapids for my training
I chose GRMEP for a number of reasons. Firstly, the residents displayed a sense of enjoyment in the field they chose. They were confident that the teaching environment they were in provided them a definite preparation to launch onto the next phases of their careers. They were excited and proud to have chosen GRMEP as their training ground. Secondly, the faculty and staff impressed upon me a feeling that there is true camaraderie in this program, where anyone could be a teacher and a mentor for one another. There was certainly an atmosphere here that was built to promote education, growth and comfort. Lastly, Grand Rapids as a city is inviting and accepting, with just the right elements to help anyone start off on the right foot.
