In Episode 5, I talk to Ayesha Yahya, who will be an intern at WellSpan York Hospital this year. She has had an unconventional road to orthopedics. Ayesha started her career as a researcher and got into medicine unsure of what specialty she would pursue. Recently, Ayesha wrote a guest post on our blog about how to do research as a student. During our podcast conversation, Ayesha shares her very personal story of how she chose orthopedics, found mentors to help guide her, and how she approached pursuing orthopedics after going unmatched. Open eyed, honest perseverance is the theme of this episode and I hope you find it as inspirational and informational as I did.
