Medical School: University of Maryland School of Medicine


Prior to medicine: I spent time teaching English in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Outside interests: Music, hiking, writing, cooking, basketball.

Career plans: Preventive Cardiology

Why I chose YPC: The culture and mission of YPC stood out to me during my interview cycle. (P.s. After being here 3 months, I can say that the great impression has lasted :) )

My favorite things about New Haven: Nearby beaches, hiking spots, good food options.

My advice for applicants: It is very easy to get too much input and be overstimulated or get decision fatigue. Focus on the big picture and listen to your gut instinct, and take the advice of others with a grain of salt.
