Why do you enjoy working at AFP?

I love the people!  AFP seriously has the greatest group of people.  The residents are fun but work extremely hard.  I enjoy the full spectrum of family medicine I get to practice here as well as the myriad of administrative opportunities. 

What year did you join the faculty at AFP?
