Dear Grad Student
The COVID Cohort: Starting, Adjusting, & Staying in Grad School During a Pandemic
Dec 14, 2020 Episode 18
Elana M. Gloger, M.S.

In this episode of Dear Grad Student, Elana chats with 1st year Clinical Psychology PhD student and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Pooja Mamidanna (@PoojaMamidanna), all about her experience as a member of the 'COVID Cohort' AKA the students who started grad school during the pandemic.

We chat about her research and clinical interests working with and for people from marginalized backgrounds, accepting her PhD offer (and why she didn't defer) when the world was shutting down, grief during the pandemic, starting grad school & becoming a licensed therapist, racism and discrimination in grad school, connecting with others in her cohort, & how to support students next semester and onward.
