2nd Year, Pediatrics
The pediatrics residency program director and the residents we met during the interview process convinced us that Yale New Haven Hospital was the right choice for us.
Patsy and I couples matched at Yale New Haven Hospital. We weren't married when we interviewed and the pediatrics residency program director asked me at the end of the interview, "What are your intentions?"
Pediatrics is a nice specialty because, for the most part, everyone is pretty easy-going. That's definitely the case at Yale New Haven, where we've become good friends with a lot of people in our program, from attendings to residents.
We live in downtown New Haven, in Wooster Square, which is a really nice neighborhood. We came from Washington, DC, and were pleased with the affordability of the area. We live in a two-bedroom townhouse, go out to restaurants and movies, and, luckily, are able to put some money away every month.
