Yelena can draw on a rich variety of international experiences. She was a community outreach volunteer, clinical intern, and research assistant at the Zaytsev Psychoneurological Center in St. Petersburg, Russia; she studied human neural stem cell differentiation at the Institute of Reconstructive Neurobiology at the University of Bonn, Germany; and she explored Sino-Soviet relations as an undergraduate research fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and at the Waterhead Center for International Affairs, both in Cambridge, MA. Yelena received her undergrad degree in Romance Languages and Literature – with a focus on French – from Harvard (where she was a reporter and editor for the Harvard Crimson). Since entering residency, she has developed a passion for working with patients with depression, anxiety, and PTSD; psychotherapy, and community psychiatry. She enjoys mentoring medical students as a resident liaison for the UW-Madison chapter of Psych-Sig, volunteering at Safe Haven with the homeless, and shaping the future of the program as a member of the Residency Selection Committee.
