Tesia Kolodziejczyk, OMS III

Class of 2021

Why did you choose RVUCOM?
Close to home! Being close to my support system was very important to me.

What do you like most about RVUCOM?
I really like the way the curriculum is set up – I enjoy that we learn normal physiology first year and pathology second year. Repetition is key!

What are your medical interests?
My medical interests are Dermatology, Internal Medicine, and maybe Oncology.

What do you appreciate most about Colorado and the local area?
I love how accessible the mountains are here in Colorado. We get the best of both worlds – city life and the mountains!

What are your plans after RVUCOM?
I hope to end up practicing in a smaller town and to own two golden retrievers, Moose and Mabel!

What do you do in your spare time?
I love to go fishing whenever I can get away for a bit!

What advice do you have for first-year students?
Repetition – the more times you can review a lecture the better.
