Marcus Oliver, OMS-II

Class of 2021

What are your medical interests?
Anesthesia and Emergency Medicine are my top picks right now.

What are your plans after RVUCOM?
Help people; hopefully in a good residency.

What do you do in your spare time?
Longboard, Xbox, and hike. Also, I just got a 1980 XT250 which has been a fun project for the summer.

What advice do you have for first-year students?
Balance your life, love those who are on this journey with you, and never see setbacks as a failure.

Why did you opt for osteopathic medicine?
People are more than symptoms and problems. The Osteopathic Tenet of the body being self-regulating and self-healing really connected with me. Sometimes people just need a little nudge to see they have the power to live healthier, happier lives.
