Dr. Jorge Castillo Gonzalez says:

I really enjoyed my time in the IJR. Everybody was so kind and I felt welcomed by everybody from the very first time I entered the building. I remember I interviewed in all of the programs in the area, and UIC was my first choice at the time of making my ranking. I liked that the attendings were very down to earth  at the same time of doing great things in their field of work. Child Psychiatrists rely heavily on teamwork and there are lots of opportunities to work with people from other disciplines, also, scholarly activities are numerous and you get full support to participate in academic activities.  Attendings are very supportive and they help you to develop your clinical skills allowing you to explore your own personal style. My time in UIC has been one of the most important moments in my career, and I think my training there prepared me to work practically anywhere.

Future plans: Outpatient primary care collaboration in Chicago.
