142 – The Come-Up: Dr. Nancy Yen-Shipley finds her inner renaissance self

What’s good everyone!!

This is the last “The Come-Up” segment for the year and it will definitely deliver. The Come-Up is meant to get you to take action by showcasing doctors who are early in their journey. Meet Dr. Nancy Yen-Shipley, an orthopedic surgeon who is on the path to being a doc outside the box. In addition to speaking, Dr. Nancy is very active on social media with her website and also serves as a team physician for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team. 

Whether you’re a premed student or a seasoned veteran doctor, there’s a lot you’re going to learn from this episode. Not only was she “weeded” out during her premed years at UCLA, she shares about her nontraditional path to medical school as well as the imposter syndrome she learned to leave in her rear-view window.
