Episode 109 is now available on iTunes!

I interviewed – Annie, spouse of a recent graduate here at #UUSOM

“Just as you’re figuring out something, it changes on you.”

Peter and Annie met in junior high school, but didn’t start dating until a few years later. When Peter decided to apply for med school, Annie knew that she would stand by his side and support him throughout the journey. We discuss how applying for med school compared to applying for residency, and how it was important to be flexible with constant changes. She explains how setting low expectations as a spouse created less disappointment and finally, her involvement in the Medical Student Alliance (MSA).

So head on over to iTunes, look for "Talking Admissions and Med Student Life". It will be Episode 109. And, if you can, please leave a rating.

We'll be taking a break from podcasting for the rest of the Summer as we focus on the #Classof2023 application cycle, we'll be back with Episode 110 in early Fall!

Take care,

Dr. Chan

Episode 108 is now available on iTunes!

I interviewed Antigone and Ira, successful couples match and recent graduates here at #UUSOM

“Am I really going to derail the path that I’m on right now to line up with somebody else?”

Antigone and Ira have different versions of how they met, but it was the journey here to UUSOM that brought them together. We talk about what it meant to be a couple in med school and the big decision that Ira made to line his path up with Antigone’s. They share how it felt to spend a year apart, and finally, how their fourth year was “organized chaos”.

So head on over to iTunes, look for "Talking Admissions and Med Student Life". It will be Episode 108. And, if you can, please leave a rating.

Something is amiss here at #UUSOM! No need to worry, "Doc Awesome" is on the case as he teaches young sleuths the ins and outs of forensic crime science this week as part of a summer camp program. Did you know that the Office of Inclusion and Outreach offers a wide variety of programs to teach and engage children in the world of science? That's just a small piece of all that they do! Check out this fantastic program at medicine.utah.edu/outreach/

Episode 107 is now available on iTunes!

I interviewed Zach, spouse of a recent graduate here at #UUSOM

“Try to put them first and reduce the stressors in their life.”

Zach met his wife Tenley, while she had taken a year off to improve her application for medical school. We talk about what it was like to go through the process of transitioning from a regular job life to a medical student life, and how it was important to keep the lines of communication open when frustrations occurred. He shares the ways that made her a priority to help reduce her stress, and finally, the types of ideas he offered when it came to selecting a path for residency.

So head on over to iTunes, look for "Talking Admissions and Med Student Life". It will be Episode 107. And, if you can, please leave a rating.

Another member of #uusom #classof2022 is showing some #uusompride in Ankor Wat, Cambodia.

According to Nicholas, the most difficult part of this picture was not flying half way around the world or hiking in 114 degree weather.... this whole blue to red transition ain't easy :P

Thanks for showing the love! #uofumedstudentlife #futuredoctor

Guess what?! It’s warm outside!! Guess what else?! Cottonwood canyon is in your back yard!

Head up the canyon this week for a nice hike, to get outdoors, or to have a nice BBQ and relax.

Make it a celebratory hike for all those recent grads, or a nice break for those who are studying!
