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 on the maternal child health track with special interests in prenatal management, reproductive justice, and narrative medicine. 

When I’m not on call I’m…

At the pool, reading my family's book club choice, and writing my novel.

A fun fact or two about me…

I collect fairy tale books, and I rescued a feral black cat just before residency started.
