Tanvee Varma ’18, Yale Medical School

Varma

Starting medical school has been a surreal experience! During our first week, we were exposed to a multitude of clinical settings, from the operating room, to the VA hospital and Yale's Simulation Center and the exposure has been really inspiring. Whenever I felt overwhelmed as a premedical student at Wellesley, I would remind myself of what I was working towards: the privilege of caring for and supporting patients through one of the most challenging experiences of their life. To finally be here in medical school is something that definitely hasn't sunk in yet! I am beyond grateful to wake up excited every day, to be able to do the work that I have always dreamed of doing.
