The Envelope Please: BU’s Graduating Medical Students Match to Their Future

Darienne Madlala graduated from Amherst in 2016 with a B.A. in history. After serving in the Pesce Corps for two years, she subsequently matriculated at Boston University School of Medicine. We keep in touch with our prehealth students well beyond the time when they start graduate school, and recently we heard from Darienne that upon her medical school graduation this spring of 2024, she will start her residency at Jefferson in Philadelphia in obstetrics and gynecology. She’s a shining example of how the Amherst liberal arts education and the kind of community service she did with the Peace Corps are such a superb preparation for the health professions. Darienne sent us an article about her Match Day at BU, which includes a celebratory photo and a paragraph about her. Congratulations, Darienne!
