Introduction   Welcome to petergayed.com, the official web dwelling of Pete Gayed. Glad you could make it. Feel free to contact me at .
           I’m founder of IvyTicket and NBME Answers & Explanations. I went to Yale for med school. Before med school, I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I also spent some time at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis studying the telomerase enzyme and how it might be used to predict clinical outcomes in patients with osteosarcoma. Between undergrad and med school, I spent a year at the University of Oxford, Hertford College.

Here are some things I’ve done:


Web design   I’ve been making websites since 2006, when I took ENGL 482 at the University of Illinois with Professor Spencer Schaffner. What I love most about professors’ websites, Spencer’s being a paragon, is their unpretentiousness, which is beautiful, practical and simple. Spencer’s site looks good; it’quirky; it doesn't rely on fany fonts or crazy typekits. It’s just him. I strive to do the same with my own sites.
           Sometimes I wonder what my life would have looked like if I hadn’t taken Spencer’s class. I probably wouldn’t have accumulated the 6,000+ online bookmarks that I’ll never look at again. [big smile emoticon] Thanks Spence!

Some handmade websites of mine:


Written things   Over the years I’ve written things. You can find some of them here.


Lectures   During medical school, I was a lecturer for the USMLERx Express Series, where I delivered lectures covering the basic science topics of immunology, pharmacology & biochemistry.
           I received very encouraging feedback from students who used these lectures to prepare for Step 1 of the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination).
