Sabrina's Update

"Since graduating Princeton I completed a Masters in Medical Sciences at Boston University where I was involved in cutting edge cancer research. In the past four years I have been attending medical school in Tel Aviv, Israel at the Sackler School of Medicine. Finally, I have recently been accepted to a residency program in emergency medicine at Yale University which I will begin this coming June.

I have been able to utilize my Spanish language skills heavily in the hospital environment and connect with Spanish speaking patients in a deep way that has been extremely meaningful. Additionally, my thesis work on Spanish medical translation has only become more important to showcase and to highlight disparities in medicine. I feel so lucky to be an advocate and somewhat of an expert who can speak on these matters and educate others as I move into the medical space and treat the individuals I wrote about many years ago."

Sabrina recently reached out to her mentors including SPO Acting Chair, Christina Lee with the following note:

As I prepare to embark on this next phase of my career, I am filled with gratitude for the incredible support system that surrounds me. I am immensely blessed to have each of you in my corner, and I cannot thank you enough for the role you have played in helping me achieve my goals.

Please join us in congratulating Sabrina on her achievements and acceptance to Yale's residency program on SPO's Instagram post!
