Year at Medical Partnership
Undergrad & Year

Any gap years? If so, what did you do?
I took two gap years. After graduation, I lived in Hawaii with my parents for two months. Upon returning to Atlanta, I worked for an internal medicine physician as a medical assistant for a year and a half before starting medical school.

Bio: tell us about yourself
Hey everyone! My name is Jordan Baker, and I am fourth-year medical student at the Medical Partnership. I am originally from Powder Springs, GA, which is a small suburb roughly 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Most of my childhood consisted of playing baseball. I had the opportunity of playing at the University of Hawaii for one year until I realized I clearly was not good enough to play professionally. However, I am still a huge fan of baseball and an avid Atlanta Braves fan. My dad’s family is from Hawaii, so I had the opportunity of living in Hawaii for quite some time after graduating high school. Since high school, I have wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. My passion for this field originated from the constant visits I had for numerous arm injuries sustained throughout my baseball career. To be a part of a field that gives so much to athletes is something that tailors both my passion for medicine and sports. Other interests of mine include playing piano, singing (even though its atrocious and for the sake of your ears, I would not recommend listening), fitness, and spending time with family and friends. I am so grateful to be a part of the Medical Partnership community and constantly inspired by the unique minds I interact with daily.
