Get to know Ashlee Randolph, DO, family medicine resident.

“Find a program where you can be yourself, and be honest with where you are in life and what you need.”

What makes your Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) training program different from other programs across the country?

I anticipated residency would focus on professional growth but was not expecting training that would also prioritize my personal growth. This program truly focuses on supporting you becoming the best version of yourself and knowing that through that growth, you can best serve your patients and community.

What has been the most extraordinary part of your training experience so far?

Our longitudinal curriculum allows me to maintain better continuity with patients in clinic and improve mental flexibility, something I have found to be critical as a family medicine physician. 

What is one memory you have from your training so far that will stick with you for your career?

I helped with a delivery and the next morning was able to care for that baby on the newborn floor. Eight months later, I was working in the pediatric ER and by coincidence took care of this same baby once again. As a family medicine physician, I had the opportunity to be present at such an important moment in mom’s life, to celebrate with her and then be able to provide her reassurance eight months later. 

What is one piece of advice you would share with someone as they select a training program?

Find a program where you can be yourself, and be honest with where you are in life and what you need.

What does it mean to be a resident at LVHN?

It means knowing the people I work alongside are more than just colleagues and mentors; they are family who are there to support me during both good and bad days.
