Since graduating from Alma
I have finished medical school at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and residency training at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, the pediatric hospital affiliated with Northwestern University. I’ve had the chance to study in China and spend a month teaching neonatal resuscitation in Tanzania, along with facilitating small-group learning with medical students here in Chicago.
My Alma education
allowed me to have a broad range of experiences, explore many interests, and develop critical thinking skills that would help me succeed in any field I chose. I started my time at Alma as a theatre major, and didn’t decide to apply to medical school until the summer before my final year.
My favorite place(s) on campus included
the theatre, where I spent a lot of afternoons in the shop, and Gelston Hall, where I was an RA for my final two years.
My favorite professors(s) included
Dr. Ball of Health Sciences and Dr. Fobes from Sociology.
My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is
the semester I spent abroad in Kerala, South India. Along with two Alma classmates, I worked with patients at a hospital, taught at an elementary school, and attended courses with professors from Mahatma Gandhi university. We stayed with a local family and had a truly immersive experience.
