Why Yale? Honestly, it was the people. I got the sense (even on Zoom) that this is a program where the residents and leadership are very supportive of each other. I also love serving a diverse patient population within a program that values having residents that reflect that population.
Favorite Apizza: Koon Thai, Pokemoto, Bella’s Cafe
How do you stay busy outside the hospital? I’m a self-described brunch enthusiast, so I try to brunch as often as possible. I also enjoy taking care of my plant children, listening to podcasts, and hanging out with my lovely co-residents.
