Oral History Interview with Jocelyn Edathil

Oral history interview with Jocelyn Edathil, conducted by Philadelphia Fellow Alyssa Siji.

Dr. Jocelyn Edathil was born in North Philadelphia to a couple who migrated from Kerala to the U.S. in the mid 1970s. Growing up in the Syro Malankara faith inspired her to become a religious sister at a young age. Simultaneously, her desire to become a physician grew after seeing her mother go to work each day as a nurse, therefore, she decided to pursue both vocations by attending Villanova University for undergrad, Penn State for her graduate degree, and Temple for her residency. Soon after, she began her formation with the Sisters of the Imitation of Christ in India. She is currently the Co-Chief Patient Experience Officer at Temple Health and continues her ministry through her involvement in the Malankara Catholic Youth Movement.
