MGHFC and Me: During my interview, even though it was virtual, I felt at home and would join a close-knit group. I knew I will be supported, and the faculty will be invested in fostering my research interests and clinical growth. The program at MGHfC offers strong clinical experience with enormous research resources all within a smaller group, which is what I am looking for. Outside of work, I like to spend my time coffee tasting, reading and barre exercising.
