The one piece of advice I give to applicants, which was also given to me, is "go with your gut." The psychiatry residency at Brown University was definitely the place that felt most right for me when I interviewed. When I was looking for a program I wanted several things: diversity in hospital settings and population of patients,well-rounded and inspiring colleagues, andhappy residents. I also wanted aprogram with a strong early child experience, given my interest in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. I have been incredibly lucky coming to Brown and feeling as if my residency experience has providedme with what I was looking for in a residency. The other residents here are extraordinary people, let alone physicians, and I learn something from them everyday. Brown is also a very supportive place to encourage your own developmentof your interests. I completed the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institutes’ Fellowship. If you have any questions for me, please contact me through the Residency Coordinator.
