|A Day in the Life of a PGY-1 Resident|
Sarosh Khan, DO
Dear reader, I am thrilled that you stumbled on this page. My name is Sarosh, and I am a PGY-1 at BMC Psychiatry. I spent my formative years in Pakistan before my family moved to Connecticut in 2006.
|A Day in the Life of a PGY-2 Resident|
Brandon Ilechukwu, DO
Hi, my name is Brandon Ilechukwu and I’m a PGY-2 psychiatry resident at BMC. Starting second year as a categorical resident means we now only have psychiatry rotations throughout the year. We get to see psychiatry applied in a wide variety of services through a block schedule and we begin to get a much better idea of what areas of practice we’re interested in.

Jessica Kabrt, DO
My name is Jessica Kabrt and I am a PGY-3 Resident at BMC. The third year is focused mostly on outpatient work, along with 3 weeks of night float (done in two 1 week blocks as well as random weekend nights at BMC and the West Roxbury VA), about 7 weekend day shifts throughout the year, and three 24-hour call shifts at the West Roxbury VA.

Hi everyone! My name is Maanasa Bandla and I’m a PGY-4 resident at BMC. Fourth year is a nice change of pace from the previous years.
