Is there life after medical school? Yes. Residency, check. Fellowship, check. Interviewing for attending positions, in progress. 

Despite an interruption in course work to care for her cancer-stricken mother, Dr. Wendy Chen never lost focus on the final goal: earning her MD. She was an active student leader, becoming one of the first OUMSA presidents, and was always supportive of current and prospective students — while a medical student, as a resident, as a geriatric fellow. 

Dr. Wendy Chen is wrapping up her Geriatric Fellowship at the University of Chicago. Join Dr. Chen for a frank discussion on what it takes to succeed in med school and learn how OUM’s innovative program suits non-traditional students.
