Why are you planning to earn a MD/PhD?
I am excited to help patients through their journeys of health and healing, and it is important to me that I approach issues from multiple perspectives to gain a broader view of the topic. An MD-PhD will help me develop a wider understanding of the systems and diseases that I will work with, and enable me to be involved in several different aspects of providing treatment.
How do you like to spend time out of lab/away from academic work?
I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee, spending time outside, and petting every dog I meet.
