Why did you choose podiatric medicine? I've always been interested in medicine and especially surgery. Once I shadowed a podiatrist I knew that a career in this field would be very fulfilling.
Why did you choose Kent State? Kent State was my top choice because of the school size, location, and board pass rates.
Favorite aspect of Kent State now that you are a student here: Everyone is rooting for you to become the best doctor you can be!
As a first-year student, what are some of the challenges you faced while transitioning into medical school? Moving across the country and getting back into school after a 2 year break was a little challenging! But making friends through orientation week helped me get comfortable being in a new place.
What advice do you have for anyone considering podiatry school? If you want a fulfilling career where you can serve the community through medical intervention then podiatry school would be an excellent choice.
What are some of the activities/clubs you are involved in at KSUCPM? I'm a member of ASPS, APMSA, and ACFAS. I try to attend most school activities put on by my fellow students to show support!
