Edom Seyoum, MD
Hi, my name is Edom Seyoum and I am a PGY-1 at the Boston University Medical Center General Psychiatry Residency Program. Like many other psychiatry programs, our intern year is split between psychiatry rotations and off-service rotations.

Alexander Chang, MD
Hi, my name is Alex Chang, and I’m a PGY-2 resident. During 2nd year, we start doing only psychiatry rotations. We also get 1 elective month, which can be either utilized for research time or an international elective. In fact, I’m writing this now while on my away rotation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
