Jared Keele, OMS II

Class of 2021

Why did you choose RVUCOM?
A big reason was to stay in Colorado. I have also had friends matriculate through RVU before me who told me how great it was!

What do you like most about RVUCOM?
The closeness of the community, not only with students and professors, but with administration and everyone in between. Everyone knows everyone. There is a mutual respect and it shows in every interaction!

What are your medical interests?
A majority of my medical interest lies in in-patient medicine, whether it’s in an Emergency Room or in the ICU. I am not sure yet, but I am excited to find out!

What do you do in your spare time?
I spend a lot of my time outside with my wife. Camping, hiking, fishing, and skiing take up a lot of time for me!

What advice do you have for first-year students?
Trust the process. Take it one day at a time and know that in the end you are going to be prepared to be an incredible physician. This allows you to enjoy medical school more and be less stressed throughout the year!

What is a fun fact about you?
I commercial fish with my family in the summers back in Alaska.
