What Our Fellows Say
 

Erica Nakajima

"This is a special place. In the beginning the COVID-19 pandemic, as our entire program was trying to make and cope with rapid changes, we started using the phrase “One Fellowship, One Family.” This sums up my experience in the program well before COVID-19 broke out."

Jackie Zimmerman

"I continue to be overwhelmed by the supportive and collaborative environment and the diverse educational opportunities. Moreover, her mentorship and the additional expertise of my mentorship committee are guiding a training experience that is unique to my interests and training goals."

What Our Fellows Say
 

Naj Waseem

"The 12 of us first years are all extremely close and given the nature of our work it doesn't take long to become family. We see patients at their worst and sometimes it is shattering. There's not another group of 11 people I would want to put the pieces back together, not to mention the support from all of the upper year fellows, chiefs, and program leadership."

Ramy Sedhom

"I can proudly say I’ve grown as a person and a doctor at Hopkins, and my only regret is leaving my co-fellows, who have become my extended family."
