    My husband and I have really liked Dallas. We like checking out local festivals, going to some craft breweries, and playing with the pups on the weekend. So far, all my expectations for this program are being met. I’ve seen tons of patients and sometimes the diagnoses that walk through the door I’ve never even heard of. But I’m learning how to manage it. I’ve learned a lot about traumas and critical care, and I’ve gain confidence in becoming a PEM provider. - Lyndsey van der Laan, M.D.
