Stephanie Yarnell-Mac Grory, MD, PhD, faculty within Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine and a graduate of the Yale Psychiatry Residency Program, Law and Psychiatry Fellowship Program, Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program, and former chief resident, has been elected to serve as a student representative on Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business Judicial Board.
Yarnell-Mac Grory, who is completing the Global Executive MBA Program at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business, was elected through a peer-nominated, highly competitive process.
“It is an honor to be nominated and elected by my peers; I consider it a marker of their faith in my judgement and decision-making,” Yarnell-Mac Grory said. “A true mark of leadership, there is perhaps no greater compliment than when people place their faith and trust in you to represent and advocate for them during their most vulnerable moments, when so much is on the line."
The position is a two-year term. The Judicial Board includes two student representatives in addition to faculty members and a faculty chairperson appointed by the Dean. Board members are expected to uphold the highest levels of professionalism and integrity while helping educate the student community, faculty, and administration about the school’s Honor Code, academic policies, and serving during judicial hearings.
Yarnell-Mac Grory said her training at Yale helped prepare her for her new position at Duke: “Yale told us on day one of residency that their goal was ‘to make leaders in the field,’” she said. “Election to a position of this caliber and seriousness is a marker that I am fulfilling the mission placed upon me by the Yale Department of Psychiatry as well as efforts to lead more broadly outside of the field -- a mission that I take very seriously and hope to continue fulfilling during my career.”
