    Ep136 | The Residency Couples Match 101 with Hana O’Hagan and Adam Cardone

    Ep136 | The Residency Couples Match 101 with Hana O’Hagan and Adam Cardone

    In this episode, we discuss everything you need to know about the Residency Couples Match, and more! We interview two recent graduates from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, Hana O’Hagan and Adam Cardone, who participated in the Residency Couples Match.



    Hana O'Hagan is from the suburbs of Chicago. She matched into internal medicine residency at the University of Chicago where she is excited to grow as a general internist before further subspecializing in Geriatrics or Hospice and Palliative Medicine. Hana discovered her passion for working with older adults prior to medical school through working as a private caregiver in college and as a nursing aid in a memory care facility during her gap year. Throughout medical school she continued working with local senior citizens by running Senior Programing for a local community center, an endeavor for which she received a prestigious nationally recognized service fellowship awarded to healthcare professionals leading projects aimed at addressing health disparities and improving the well-being of underserved communities. Additionally, Hana loves to teach and thus plans to pursue a career in academic medicine so that she can support the next generation of physicians as she herself was supported by her incredible mentors. Overall, Hana is grateful for her time at Stritch and excited for her future career in the incredible field of medicine.



    Adam Cardone has roots only 10 minutes from Loyola University Medical Center as he is from  LaGrange, Illinois, and is a proud alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Specializing in Internal Medicine, Adam is drawn to the field for its deep patient relationships and the intellectual rigor it demands, with particular interests in Cardiology and Hematology/Oncology. Beyond medicine, he's passionate about mentorship and education, evident in his leadership of the Health Career Collaborative, a program introducing high school students to medical careers. Adam looks forward to learning and growing in a field that offers deep patient relationships and intellectual challenges, grounded in his commitment to service and education.



    Feel free to contact Adam and Hana, respectively, at: acardone5@outlook.com and hana.ohagan@outlook.com.

With her passions for diversity, health equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA), she strives to be a voice for marginalized communities.

    During medical school, she publicly disclosed her own academic and health challenges including failing STEP1, taking a leave of absence, and living with chronic health conditions. Through her experience, she has become an advocate for combating stigmas in medicine and provided mentorship through social media, her blog medpsycmoss.com, and most recently, her podcast “Life as a Patient-Doctor.” During the 2023-2024 Residency application cycle, she dual applied to both Family Medicine and Psychiatry across the Midwest, ultimately matching in her top specialty and program.

Easy Listen!

I really enjoyed the diversity of topics they explored! Great group out of Loyola Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. Looking forward to more episodes!

Informative and Entertaining

Really enjoying listening so far. It's informative, entertaining, and has given me insight into both being a better medical student and doctor. They have great guests who really get to the heart of what it means to truly practice medicine. I know I'll use a lot of the things I've learned as I continue as a medical student and as a resident and physician one day.

By Medical School Students For Medical School Students

Medicus is a wonderful podcast that sheds a light on medical school, residency, and everything else related to becoming a doctor. The students running the podcast are bright and lively, often mixing in their own personalities into the interviews they are sharing. I feel like every time a new episode pops up I am going to learn something new about my future field of study. Thank you so much for filling this void in my podcast needs Medicus! Keep it up!
