Year in Med School


Where did you complete your undergraduate education?

Williams College

Tell us a little bit about yourself

At Williams I played football and majored in History, and I recently got engaged to my fiancée Merritt!

Why did you choose MCG and the Medical Partnership campus?

The small class size, Small Group Learning, and the high faculty:student ratio.

What is your advice for someone who is interested in medical school?

To keep an open mind throughout the process. Every school is going to have its own unique curriculum and student culture and its important to find the best fit for you.

What is a typical day for you?

I wake up and study for a few hours before going into clinic. After clinic is over I’ll go for a run before making dinner and studying a little more. At the end of the day I typically take a break and watch some football or Netflix before I go to bed.

What motivated you to want to be a physician?

I was a medical assistant after I graduated from college, and I really enjoyed certain aspects of that job so I felt that a career in medicine would be fulfilling.

Favorite place to eat in Athens


If you could have dinner with one person, who would it be?

Terry Pratchett
