Why Yale? My first experience with Yale Urology was during my surgery clerkship rotation. I was amazed by the warmth, kindness, and mutual respect between faculty, residents, and staff. I laughed the most I had ever laughed in medical school during that rotation. As a resident, I truly enjoy spending time with my co-residents, we all support each other. The surgical training here is top notch, we get early exposure to every sub-specialty in urology. I am confident that I will be a well-rounded urologist at the end of my training here.

Why New Haven? I have lived in several cities, and New Haven is my favorite so far. It’s a small town with a lot of charm. There hasn’t been anything I wanted to do that I haven’t been able to do here. The proximity to major cities and New England tourist attractions is also a major plus. I have been pleasantly surprised by how much I’ve loved having 4 seasons, fall and spring seasons are gorgeous here!

New Haven: I’m excited about all the new food spots opening up in and around New Haven and exploring New England as much as residency schedule allows.

What would you be doing if not urology? Air hostess
