Hi. I just graduated from UCSF medical school where I helped establish a women’s mentoring program. This summer I will begin a pediatric residency program at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City. Although I don’t totally know what to expect from residency, I am willing to form a mentoring relationship via email – with the caveat that it might take me a couple days to respond at times. I am recently married to a second-year medical student, and although my maternal instincts are strong, we have decided to wait until after residency to have children. Professionally, I am interested in pediatric oncology and issues of care at the end of life. Personally, I enjoy swing dancing, country-line dancing, exercising, traveling, reading, crocheting, and long talks with old friends over good food.
Hi all. Dr Sus inspired me to post as well. I am a 30 year old psychiatry resident (PGY4 as of July 1, 2002!!) in NYC, and would be happy to strike up a conversation with anyone looking for advice or camaraderie. By way of background, I grew up in the midwest and attended Ivy League college and med school, where I also did a lot of advising and admissions work. No kids, am about to be married this fall (anyone else out there trying to plan a wedding in between on-call shifts?). Would be glad to chat with anyone contemplating med school, psychiatry, life in general.
I am a mature 😎 premed student in New York and would love to be mentored by anyone who is willing to share. I have posted on the finding a mentor forum and I am not sure that I should even post here :confused: . However, if you are willing to share, I am anxious to learn.
I’d love to volunteer as an e-mail mentor. I’m a third year resident at Maimonides in Brooklyn, NY, and I have 3 great kids. I usually check my e-mail at least once a day, but may not always be able to respond instantly.
