Addressing underrepresentation in medicine
“We are happy to make sure this transition does not break you like it as so many others, & we want to see you succeed with minimal financial worries. Residency is tough. We can help.”
- Dr Farrah-Amoy Fullerton, PGY1 and MedGradWishList co-founder, pediatrics
