Allison Bond is a senior resident in internal medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She's also a medical writer, having attended New York University for a masters in science, health and environmental reporting, and Northwestern University for an undergraduate degree in journalism. After some time in the writing world, though, medicine's pull became impossible to ignore, and she attended Boston University for medical school. She also enjoys running, hiking, yoga, and time with friends and family (hopefully outdoors!).
I am a pulmonary / critical care fellow at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine/ Elhurst Hospital Center, NY and I strongly believe that we can all make learning a fun experience via discussions and knowledge sharing !
I was born in Kashmir, India and migrated with my parents to Delhi, where I completed high school. I satisfied my taste palate, cultural curiosity and the travel bug when I went to a state school in the southern part of India, near Banglore. My interest in staying on the East Coast got me matched at SUNY Upstate in Syracuse for Internal Medicine following which I did a year of chief residency at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, MA. The chief year was instrumental in helping me decide where my heart lay with respect to fellowship options. I am now back to the state where I feel most at home, and in the city that never sleeps: Exciting times!
Resident education and academics are what keep me going. It was part of my "wishlist" of things to do while at Lahey and we worked our hardest to make the academics as engaging and interactive as possible with a number of new features. Going forward I would love to invest my time in helping residents with their academic and life goals, including helping as best possible with career planning !
So, fire away !!!!
