What aspects of the curriculum at University of Minnesota Medical School are your favorite?
I love the variety of learning environments and content delivery formats from in-person large group lectures to small group case discussions with facilitators. Also, having a pass/fail curriculum designed to focus on student physical and mental wellbeing has been invaluable. It gives us all time to pursue things that bring us joy in addition to keeping up with our coursework.
What are your favorite things to do in the Minnesota/Twin Cities area?
I was born and raised in Minneapolis and there is nowhere else I would rather be! The lakes, breweries, and parks all being so close to campus makes taking time to recharge with fun activities incredibly convenient.
What are three adjectives you would use to describe your classmates?
Considerate, Determined, Warm
What is one of your future goals as a physician?
My overarching goal as a physician is to leave my piece of the medical world in a better place than it is today. This includes everything from healthcare access and equity to innovating medical practices that keep up with technological advances.
