Jocelyn Chen

New Alumni

Jocelyn (SEAS ’23) studied Biomedical Engineering and Psychology during her time at Columbia. Growing up, Jocelyn spent her time in Shantou, China and Toronto, Canada before attending boarding school in Windsor, Connecticut. As an RCSS intern, she was the teaching assistant for the palliative seminar Life at the End of Life with Dr. Craig Blinderman. 

As she graduates, her time in the RCSS will be one of her fondest memories, including the students, guest speakers, and staff at the Terrence Cardinal Cooke nursing home whom she shared her time in LATEOL with as well as RCSS members and professors whom she enjoyed catching up with at monthly faculty house lunches. She will also remember the delicious food served by the kind staff at faculty house, especially the much needed coffee at 1pm before afternoon lectures. 

After Columbia, Jocelyn will be spending two years as an engineer and research assistant at the Columbia University Fertility Center, finding creative ways to improve fertility medicine from the lab to the clinic. She is excited to be working with Dr. Samuel Williams and his wonder team of doctors, nurses, and postdoc researchers. She is also glad to have two more years in New York City before (potentially) entering medical school in 2025.
