Zach Wagner, OMS III

Class of 2019

Why did you choose RVU?
I was excited about RVU’s innovative curriculum and quiet rooms for the babies to watch lectures too.

What do you like most about RVUCOM?
The atmosphere among students and faculty is awesome.  Also, the online recorded lectures are a lifesaver.

What is your favorite class currently and why?
Endo-Repro. Learning how a baby develops is awesome.

What do you do in your spare time?
I play on a rec league basketball team.

How is medical school different from what you anticipated?
I thought everyone would be more stand-offish for some reason. Classmates and teachers are easy-going and always willing and ready to help you out.

What advice do you have for first-year students?
Take time for yourself every day.
