Jenna FunWhy did I choose Middlesex?

The four-year curriculum appealed to me as it would allow extra, dedicated time to pursue my professional interests and I appreciated the emphasis on behavioral health. When interviewing, I immediately felt welcomed by the residents and faculty (even via zoom) and I am thrilled to say that first impression has remained true – the people here are incredible.

About my track and future goals…

I am passionate about global & community health, health literacy, rural medicine, as well as patient outreach and advocacy.

When I’m not on call I’m…

Trying out a new restaurant, reading my family’s book club choice, spending time outside, or desperately trying to write a new novel.

A fun fact or two about me…

I collect fairy tale books from other countries to learn about other cultures – plus I love the illustrations!
