Our attendings are some of the most amazing clinicians and people I have ever met. I have a new role model every day of the week.
    • What do you love about living in the Bethlehem area? Bethlehem is full of good vibes and good times. There's plenty to do no matter what you're interested in. Main street is what sold me. You can walk down the street and stop into little quirky shops while speakers play music outside. It's beautiful in the summer and even more so in the winter, decked out in holiday gear. The Poconos are beautiful and offer a bunch of wonderful vineyards nearby.
