Shayla Nettey, MD
Sometimes you just know where you belong. That’s how I would
sum up my feelings for Wake Forest after seeing the obvious camaraderie of
their residents in addition to the superb teaching and clinical care during my
interview day. Since then, my husband and
I have enjoyed our time here because of the family-like environment of the
program. I am thankful to Wake Forest for
allowing me to be a part of such a great institution and providing me with the
tools for a career as an Internist.
