March 30, 2016

Ginny Lee, MD, Class of 2013, is a Chief Resident in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Summa Akron City Hospital in Akron, Ohio.


RUSM: What attracted you to RUSM?

LEE: I appreciated the flexibility of its start dates, the Caribbean location, and having a different experience than I would have had in the United States.

RUSM: How did you prepare for the NRMP® Match?

LEE: I took several personality quizzes, interviewed at as many places as possible, and rotated at those I was very interested in.

RUSM: How did RUSM help prepare you for your residency position?

LEE: RUSM molded my study habits, taught me efficiency, and prepared me to be ready for anything.

RUSM: What are the key factors that led to you achieving a chief resident position?

LEE: I wanted to find a way I could serve the residency that gave me such a wonderful opportunity. In return, the chief resident position has taught me leadership skills. 

RUSM: What additional responsibilities have you assumed since becoming a chief resident?

LEE: I became the education chief and have enjoyed creating the academic schedule for the residency, including weekly conferences. This allowed me to interact and communicate with, as well as learn from, many great speakers and educators.

RUSM: What’s next for you?

LEE: I will be working with an Emergency Medicine group in Ohio, taking many vacations and conferences. Also, I will get married in the next year to an amazing man I met at Ross [University School of Medicine]!
