Why Yale? Since interview day I knew Yale was special. I found myself smiling from ear to ear during it but it wasn’t until I got here that I really understood the culture that this program offers. I love the people and the way the make me feel welcomed being so far away from home. In residency you will have good days and bad days. In this program you can count on people having your back and making sure you’re okay on the days that smiling becomes a little harder.
Favorite Apizza: Ice cream everyday…
How do you stay busy outside the hospital? Explore restaurants, hanging out with my co-residents and LOTS of netflix
