Why did you decide to pursue your M.D.?

Experiences in clinic and the community have shaped my desire to become a doctor who battles healthcare disparities by empowering underserved patients and leading in community health improvement.

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

I chose to attend the Medical Partnership because I was excited by the opportunities to be a part of a close-knit community of faculty and students, immerse myself in a hands-on educational environment that emphasized small-group and problem-based learning, and enjoy the vibrant cultural scene of Athens.

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

Don't be afraid to take time to exercise and socialize with classmates. Invest in a heavy duty coffee maker.
