Maddy Renzetti, MSDA Class of 2010, is a Resident Physician at NYP/Weill-Cornell Medical Center in New York City. On being an intern, Maddy says there really isn’t a “typical” day, but that’s what makes the job exiting – constantly rotating around the hospital on medicine floors, ICU, outpatient, and sub-specialty rotations. But now, there’s a lot of uncertainty. “We are all learning as we go, and guidelines are changing every day.”
Maddy is in the middle of a month of nights, currently on the inpatient COVID floors, and moving to the COVID ICU on Monday. “My nights can go from 0 to 60 at any moment in the COVID era.” Maddy remarked on her appreciation for the meals being donated to the hospital and said the camaraderie throughout all of the departments has been incredible noting, “we are all unsure and scared, but we are all in this together.”
And given what we can imagine Maddy’s experienced, her advice is important: “Please, please, please – we need you to stay away from each other and stay inside! No matter how careful you think you are being and no matter how careful you think everyone else is being, we are nearing the peak and social distancing is now more important than ever!” We are grateful for your service, Maddy!
