What made you want to go into medicine?
I thought about being a doctor when I started undergrad. That dream faded as my GPA was not very good and I just felt like there was no way I would get in. I went to college to become a paramedic after finishing my undergraduate degree. I really enjoyed being a paramedic and it provided an amazing experience. Then while I was in Afghanistan with the military working with a group of incredible physicians and nurses, I wanted to do more. I wanted to increase my scope and understanding. When I returned from overseas, I went back to school part time to improve my GPA and pursue getting into medicine.
