JENNA ULRICH, M.D.

Class of 2018

 

Internal Medicine Residency

Yale New Haven Bridgeport Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut

 

Class of 2018 graduate Dr. Jenna Ulrich did not start out wanting to become a doctor. In fact, she originally went to College for Criminal Justice, but after becoming ill in her early 20s, she developed a passion for health and wellness.


She soon switched majors and eventually completed a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology at York University, she said, because she “realized medicine was my calling.”

 

When she started looking at med schools, Dr. Ulrich knew she had many choices. UMHS in St. Kitts had exactly what she was looking for in medical education.

 

“I chose to apply and ultimately attend UMHS as the curriculum is modeled after the best U.S. medical schools and the fact that they offered an accelerated academic program.”

 

Her hard work at UMHS paid off and she obtained an Internal Medicine residency at Bridgeport Hospital (with ties to Yale University in New Haven) in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

 

Dr. Ulrich said she believes the clinical education she received at UMHS was key to her success.


“UMHS provided me with the opportunity to rotate at a variety of teaching hospitals throughout the U.S during my clinical years,” she said. “This gave me the chance to care for diverse patient populations. I think this will be an advantage in my future as a physician no matter where my career takes me.

 

Read her interview in our blog for more insight into how UMHS gave her the necessary tools to become a great doctor.


“SINCE MATCHING EVERYONE HAS BEEN ASKING IF GIVEN THE CHANCE, WOULD I DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN? AND HONESTLY, I ABSOLUTELY WOULD. UMHS IS A GREAT CARIBBEAN MEDICAL SCHOOL AND I WOULD NOT BE WHERE I AM TODAY WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND SUPPORT.”
