A Day in the Life of a Yale Psychiatry Resident

Ever wonder what it would be like to train at Yale? Get to know a typical day in the life of a Yale Psychiatry resident through our residents' own words.

My parents moved to the U.S. from the land presently known as Nigeria and after an appropriately short stint in Iowa (no offense to readers from Iowa!), they gave birth to me and my twin brother in south Florida and raised us along with my older and younger sisters in Miami.
The bulk of Ashley's upbringing was spent in Amityville, NY, and Stephanie was born and raised in the Midwest and spent much of her childhood in the suburbs of Indiana.
Growing up on the North Fork of Long Island, New York was a privilege that I appreciate far more now in retrospect.
The first fifteen years of my life were spent in the idyllic British countryside. I was surrounded by open fields filled with sheep, villages filled with flowers, and a pot filled with tea.
