Why Yale? On the interview trail, most peds residents I met were pretty happy and friendly, and the Yale residents were no exception to that...but they really stood out for how aggressively they loved their program!! Now that I'm here I can definitely see why that is. Yale has great people and a fantastic culture (not just in peds but it seems pretty institutional)--incredibly supportive and focused on wellness. It also helped that my husband loved his interview day with IM and Yale is couples matching friendly!
Favorite Apizza: Based on my limited research so far, I think one 6 three!
How do you stay busy outside the hospital? Playing with my cats, doing further research on the New Haven (a)pizza scene as well as the general New Haven food scene, attempting to do responsible things like meal prep/work out...
