About Me

About Me

I’m a 4th year medical student at RowanSOM applying to Internal Medicine! My goal is to bridge the gap between medicine and innovation, and show people the impact they have in addition to their direct relationship with patients.

Special Interests and Hobbies

UWor– I mean, I’m a big basketball fan (used to write about it!). I want to get back into writing, and have started trying to learn Python.

My Goals

My Goals for This Year

Match into an Internal Medicine program that fits me and my goals. That’s pretty much all 4th year is about.

Oh, and grow Project BreakThru.

My 5 Year Goals

Hopefully in a fellowship program (Pulm/CC maybe?). And hopefully continuing to expand my horizons and explore the bridge between business and medicine.

My 10 Year Goals

Full-fledged attending, making a local influence in the realms of business and medicine, possibly getting into teaching. Helping in my local community. Helping create leaders for tomorrow.
