Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2015
As Covid-19 tests our fortitude, Dartmouth friendships and alumni accomplishments continue to bring us humor and inspiration. I sincerely thank everyone who contributed to this issue’s Class Notes.
Ethan Canty will be finishing up his time at the Penn State College of Medicine this May, graduating with a dual-degree M.D./M.P.H. He will then move to Portland, Oregon, to begin a pediatrics residency at Oregon Health & Science University in June. He is excited to return to the West Coast and be close to family and loved ones. He also hopes that everyone is able to remain safe and healthy during this time!
Libby Fairless will graduate from Yale School of Medicine with an M.D. this May. After a virtual graduation ceremony she will move across the country to Spokane, Washington, for her first year of residency at Sacred Heart Hospital. In 2021 she will begin further training in the field of ophthalmology back in her home state at the University of Oklahoma. She wishes everyone good health and hopes to see many classmates at reunions in 2021!
Since June 2015 the original “Cenobites in Central”—including Alec Marchuk, Sam Yoder, Paul Champeau, and Henry Franco—have spread across the United States, covering a geographical region roughly the length of Sweden. Never ones to waste a good crisis, they’ve been reconvening regularly online through virtual movie nights, cybernetic cocktail hours, workouts, and game sessions. Most recently, the government labeled them all as “nonessential,” which sounds bad but is basically just the non-recording option of the working world.
Liz Morse and Andres Isaza are currently getting their M.B.A.s from Wharton.
Patrick R. Campbell and Rona Sun will be classmates again when they begin at the MIT Sloan School of Management this fall.
Shelby Schrier will be attending Harvard Business School.
Brett Teplitz matched in urology at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and will be starting his residency this summer.
Kishan Ughreja is working hard as an intern in emergency medicine at Northwestern. We thank him for all his hard work on the frontlines!
Laura Bergsten is graduating with her Ph.D. in particle physics next month. For the last two years she has been doing research at European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, and living in Switzerland. While there she’s explored the Swiss Alps through hikes, ski trips, and bike tours, sometimes in the company of other visiting alumni.
Weijie Lin is working as a resident physician at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, the public hospital of Stanford University affiliates, in the Bay Area. She was working in the ICU when Covid-19 cases started coming in and shelter-in-place orders were being announced. She is now working in inpatient wards.
As always, keep sending any updates you’d like included in the DAM to firstname.lastname@example.org. Can’t wait to see you at the College next summer for our delayed five-year reunion!
