RESIDENT FAMILY LIFE

 

EMILIA HERMANN MD, MPH,

Chief Resident 2018
Yvonne and I spend most of our
lives ouside of work running after our
18-month-old Standard Poodle puppy,
Herschel. We are excited to be back in
NYC where Herschel can join us al fresco
for dinner and plenty of people-watching.
We have enjoyed exploring the city with
him in tow (and occasionally on our own,
unencumbered by the constant sniffing.

Life outside the hospital walls pretty
much consists of three things for me: dog,
food and fitness. The Upper West Side is
an incredibly dog-friendly area with lots
and lots of dog owners and green space
between Riverside Park and Central Park
with o‹-leash hours before 10 am on
weekends, which is essentially heaven
with hundreds of awesome pups running
around. As a resident, life isn’t always
conducive to owning a pup, but thankfully
there are plenty of dog walkers that can
help you out and in
worst case scenario,
someone in the program is always
available to help out
because pet therapy
is the best therapy.

Scott, Finley, and I love running around
NYC together. There are tons of parks to
explore both in Washington Heights and
the rest of the city. The American Museum
of Natural History and the Bronx Zoo are
always winners. Finley also loves visiting
the resident lounge and doling out a little
baby therapy.

From Our Residents

Residency at Columbia has given me the opportunity to be part of a system that welcomes diversity and quickly makes you feel at home. It has certainly been a privilege to work in a setting that fosters underserved communities and mediates exposure to treat a wide array of disease in a challenging learning environment driven towards growth as well-rounded physicians while providing high quality patient care.
