in-House is the online peer-reviewed publication for residents and fellows, established in January 2015 by Aleena Paul and Ajay Major, the founders and editors-in-chief of in-Training, and Joshua Liao and Jarna Shah, the editors-in-chief of in-House.

All content on in-House is contributed by residents and fellows. As a peer-reviewed publication, the in-House Editorial Board consists entirely of residents and fellows and is editorially independent, with all content reviewed solely by the resident editors and the editors-in-chief prior to publication.


As newly minted physicians and surgeons, residents and fellows are at the front lines of medicine, working long hours as we learn the most formative lessons of our careers. These years of graduate medical training are a period of monumental transition, as we gain greater independence and confidence in our roles as clinicians. However, these years can also be challenging and isolating — physically, emotionally and socially.

To succeed in these critical years of training, and to appreciate our unique experiences in medicine as we develop professionally, residents and fellows must turn to each other. With this publication, we aspire to create a community of support that encourages discourse among trainees about the journey in and beyond the house officer years.

Mission Statement

in-House is the online peer-reviewed publication for residents and fellows, a publication dedicated to:

  • creation of a community of support around the young physician experience.
  • reflection on the diverse experiences in residency and fellowship, and the transition from student-learner to physician-teacher.
  • discovery of the similarities shared by residents and fellows, regardless of specialty, and learning from our differences.
  • building professional pathways and opportunities for residents and fellows.
