Kevin Rooney & Jannah Wing

“Going through all the stresses of medical school together has been incredible. Not only are we able to support each other and understand the everyday challenges of being medical students, but we are also able to study together and talk through tough topics. This has been incredibly helpful both for our mental health and academic success.” Ahead of Match Day 2024, MD students Kevin Rooney and Jannah Wing discussed their time in medical school and their plans for residency and beyond. They applied to residency programs through the couples’ match process, in order to pursue residency placements at the same hospitals or in the same geographic area. Read more.

Alyson Kim

“I am pursuing general surgery, a decision that was majorly influenced by a shadowing opportunity I had in the operating rooms of an obstetric fistula hospital while conducting research in Western Kenya. Seeing patients’ lives totally transform through a repair that could only be done surgically introduced me to how life-changing surgery can be.” Ahead of Match Day 2024, MD student Alyson Kim discussed her time in medical school and her plans for residency and beyond.

"I chose the College of Medicine partially because I had great experiences with Drexel and its physicians during my MPH years and partially because of the collaborative environment I detected from the faculty and students during my interview. Instead of cut-throat competition, Drexel encourages teamwork and has a sense of family amongst its students. The faculty and administration listen to our concerns and make subsequent changes, which I feel is very important to ensure the best possible education and environment during these challenging years of training."
