MGHfC and Me: I'm a med-peds PGY-1. My favorite part about MGHfC is the incredibly intelligent, inspiring, kind, and fun group of people that make this place tick! I also love the wealth of opportunities in advocacy and medical education. Even though I've only been here for a couple of months, I have been able to get involved by becoming an AAP delegate, joining the Advocacy Group, and participating in PRIME (Pediatric Residents Interested in Medical Education).

Fun Fact: My favorite place in Boston is probably the Arnold Arboretum in JP (a great place to picnic). Fun fact is that I lived in Ireland for 4 years before medical school.
