Why did you choose RVUCOM?
I chose RVUCOM because of its excellent reputation of top board scores in the nation. A nice bonus for me is that it is also located in a beautiful area close to home. It was definitely an easy choice for me to make.
What do you like most about RVUCOM?
I love how I feel like I belong at RVUCOM. We are all a family and want the best for each other.
How is medical school different from what you anticipated?
I have always been told that medical school is hard, but I didn’t really know what that meant until I was in it. Medical school is very different from undergrad education when it comes to the time commitment, the information retention requirements, and the exams. It is a new level of responsibility, but I have become a stronger person because of it all.
What advice do you have for first-year students?
Organization is very important. Professors provide lots of PowerPoints, documents, and resources that can be hard to keep track of. I recommend Microsoft OneNote as a way to consolidate all information for quick access.
What are your plans after RVUCOM?
I will be working for the Air Force as a physician after I graduate. I am planning on becoming a pediatrician because I love to work with children.
What do you do in your spare time?
I like to exercise at the gym, hike, snowboard, cook, and have an occasional Netflix binge.
