With esteemed faculty members, access to world-class research projects, a variety of high-quality clinical sites, and the ability to be near my closest family and friends, there was no better choice for me. Choosing the University of Minnesota for medical school was one of the easiest decisions to make and one I'm thankful for to this day.
