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

I chose to attend the AU/UGA Medical Partnership because of the unique case-based curriculum, the small class size, and the intimate learning environment.

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

Time management is essential to success in medical school. I recommend the use of a planner or calendar to plan out how you will spend each hour of the day.

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

I think the best part of medical school occurs during the 3rd year when you start to apply what you've learned to help patients in the clinical setting.
