A Letter from the New Editors-in-Chief


Alina and I would like to take the opportunity to introduce ourselves as the new editors-in-chief of in-House, the online peer-reviewed publication for residents and fellows.

My name is Ashley. I have been Social Media Manager for in-House since 2019. I am a third-year chief resident of pediatrics. My passions involve providing a voice for residents and fellows and promoting child advocacy and childhood literacy. I look forward to continuing these endeavors through this medium.

My name is Alina. I’ve been part of the in-Training team since I started medical school, including an exciting year as their editor-in-chief. Now that I’ve started residency, I’m looking forward to continuing my involvement with the thoughtful and creative in-House community.

We thank Ajay and Aleena for the opportunity to continue providing a safe place of expression for residents and fellows. We hope to make them proud!

Best regards,

Ashley & Alina
