Why I chose the University of Minnesota Medical School

I was born and raised in Minnesota. After graduating from undergrad here at the U, I attended nursing school before changing paths to medicine. In my free time I enjoy traveling, trying new breweries, hiking, snowboarding and rock climbing. I love Minnesota! I knew that I wanted to attend a medical education that would not only challenge me academically, but promote collaboration and innovation, while providing me with diverse clinical opportunities; the U of MN checked all those boxes. Not to mention, the professors are wonderful and will truly go out of their way to help students succeed. Beyond general questions, I'm happy to answer questions about: Being a non-traditional/career-changer student
