Why did you choose to attend the GRU/UGA Medical Partnership?

I chose to attend the GRU/UGA Medical Partnership for its unique curriculum and small class size. From the very beginning, we build the skills that will make us excellent clinicians at every level of practice. In the first semester, we worked with our peers during Small Group Learning, interacted with simulated patients, and began longitudinal service learning projects with community partners. No matter how you envision your career in medicine, the curriculum at the Medical Partnership ensures that you have the skills necessary for success.

What did you think about the transition from undergrad to medical school? Any tips for prospective students?

It's not so bad! In medical school, it's important to take responsibility for your own education. It's important to manage your time effectively and understand your learning style. Try new things, but don't be afraid to say no to things that don't work for you. The better you understand yourself, the easier it will be to put yourself in a position to succeed!

What is the best part of medical school (so far)?

My classmates! It's exciting to be surrounded by such talented, ambitious and smart people.
