YSM is truly a special place. I feel blessed every day to be a part of such a wonderful community that prioritizes the wellbeing of students and provides immense support and guidance in any capacity that students find personally and professionally meaningful.
A Day in the Life of a Med Student
The students at Yale showed me examples of the relationships I wanted to cultivate during medical school. Additionally, the Yale System fosters a non-competitive atmosphere and a collaborative environment between its students, truly allowing for educational freedom as a student.
Being at Yale has shown me that it’s possible to set the groundwork to become a strong clinician in a way that is joyful and nurturing, without sacrificing your wellbeing or your life outside of medicine in the process. It has been exciting to grow into a physician-scientist and leader without compromising the other sides of myself as a daughter, partner, friend, and sibling.
Yale offers fantastic physician and physician-scientist training and presents students with a unique medical school curriculum that places less of an emphasis on competition & grades and a greater emphasis on collaboration & curiosity. I ultimately decided Yale was the right place for me because students openly supported one-another in and outside of the classroom and students here seemed genuinely happy.
