Meet Our Students

Three students share their journeys in medicine and their plans for the future.

"Internal medicine is challenging, but the challenge is why I am drawn to it. I love figuring out the 'why' behind everything."

"I love that in psychiatry I get to blend my compassion and curiosity for others’ life stories with my fascination with neuroscience."

"The amount of resiliency and determination it took us to get to this point is going to serve us and our patients well in the future."
