Prior to medicine: I was born in China and moved to Pittsburgh at 11 years old. I attended college at Washington University in St. Louis, where I studied biology and anthropology. Afterwards, I served as an AmeriCorps volunteer for a year, mentoring local youths in St. Louis, before attending medical school at University of Maryland.
Interests within medicine: In medical school, I was involved in community health outreach, civic engagement, and advocacy. I want to care for our most vulnerable, marginalized communities both in and out of the clinical setting. I look forward to cultivating these interests in residency and incorporating them into my clinical career, which will likely center around primary care.
Why I chose YPC: I chose YPC because of its robust primary care training, close-knit community, commitment to wellness, and unique HIV Training Track.
Why New Haven: I am enjoying New Haven's diverse cuisine, proximity to nature, and affordability.
Outside interests: In my free time, I like to eat, make, and think about food, play basketball, watch TV shows and movies then listen to podcasts about them, create music with friends.
Talk to me more about: HIV Training Track, primary care vs categorical programs, living in New Haven, upcoming NBA season, the joy and anguish of residency.
