Why Yale? Although it was hard to gain a feel for most programs via Zoom, my interview with Yale was different. I was able to get a clear sense of how much all of the residents at Yale love and support each other. I laughed so much on the zoom Q&A's and genuinely had a good time! It was also evident that the faculty is supportive, down to earth, and places an emphasis on collaborative learning. Additionally, Yale was a great fit for my husband (Anesthesiology PGY-1) and we couldn’t be happier that we couples matched here!
Favorite Apizza: Khoon Thai, Rice Pot, September in Bangkok (basically ALL the Thai food)
How do you stay busy outside the hospital? Hanging out with my family and friends! I also love yoga, trying new restaurants, and exploring nature!
