Medical School:

Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine

Why UCI?

The focus this program has on caring for the underserved was a priority for me and I liked how it was also a major academic center with a variety of opportunities to learn. But the main draw for me was seeing how the residents interacted with each other because it truly felt like they were a big happy family, and it means a lot to see how well everyone gets along. It was clear they fostered a supportive and passionate culture that I would be happy to be a part of.

Medical Interests:
