Student Spotlight: Dr. Michael Aycock

When asking medical students why they want to be doctors, the majority of them say it’s been a lifelong dream. But Trinity student Mike Aycock was on a different path when he was unexpectedly led to pursuing an MD.

After having surgery on his vocal cords (made necessary by a long career as a high school band director), Mike was told by his doctor that he wasn’t to even attempt to speak for 10 days. It was during this time that Mike felt the call to become a physician. After regaining his voice, he excitedly told his wife of 34 years, Lynell, what had been occupying his mind during this doctor-mandated silence. As of today, Mike has now completed his fifth term at Trinity School of Medicine and will be moving onto the next stage of clinical clerkships in the new year.
