Why I chose the University of Minnesota Medical School

Hello! My name is Ryan Duff. I'm a 4th year here at the U and a native Minnesotan. I completed my undergraduate degree here as well and worked as an EMT in the north metro during my gap years between college and medical school. I'm applying to internal medicine with an interest in Pulmonary/Critical Care. In my off-time I run marathons and ultramarathons, and enjoy hiking, travelling, and most of all food! The best part about medical school here is the camaraderie among each class. This is a very supportive environment. Everyone looks out for each other. With the first two years all P/F, there is no cutthroat attitude among my classmates. The climate of inclusion here is unmatched! Beyond general questions, I'm happy to answer questions about: I'm an HPSP recipient through the Army and can speak about my experience with it!
