"When I reflect on the many reasons I chose to train at the Brigham, ultimately it came down to trust. I had trust and confidence in the program’s supportive and collaborative environment, as well as its integrity, expertise, and commitment to providing the most advanced training, exceptional patient care, and ongoing learning as medicine continuously evolves...
...I also choose Brigham for the awesome Boston running 😎.”
Backyard Crawfish Barbecue - Summer of Intern Year hosted by the Program Director
“I was born and raised in Texas so I had never seen real snow before I moved to Boston! Despite the long and cold winters here, I would choose Brigham again for residency because of the people. I love my co-residents and it makes all the difference on those long calls when you have an awesome team you know you can count on.
Picnic in the Swiss Alps!
We’ve supported each other through all the phases of life - births, deaths, and marriages - and I can’t imagine surviving the last four years without them. We all hang out outside the hospital as well - I’m a huge foodie and one of my favorite things to do in Boston is explore new restaurants with some of my fellow residents.”

Dr. Tran's post-ITE celebration!
I’m beyond thankful that I trusted my instincts, because here I have found people who are there for a laugh, cry, debrief, or advice whenever I need them, colleagues I am happy to be working with while I’m sleep-deprived on call at 2am, and friends with whom I will have a lifelong bond.”
End of intern year!
New Brigham Babies!
Pre-COVID: BWH vs MGH
During COVID: Intra Department
“The best part of doing my residency here is the people. I know that I can turn to any of my colleagues when I’m in need of support/help or when I just want to go out and do something fun.
I am so grateful for the lifelong friendships I have made, and I cherish each of my co-residents dearly. Residency is filled with many highs and sometimes not so great lows, but getting to work with people I consider family makes every moment beautiful.”
