I am currently finishing my first year of medical school at the LMU-DCOM in the Harrogate/Cumberland Gap, TN area. I plan to pursue a career in either Emergency Medicine, Nephrology or Hospital Administration after graduation in 2022.
Participating in ThinkAchieve has helped me fully appreciate the benefits of pursuing learning opportunities outside of the the traditional classroom setting.
During the most recent school year and the upcoming school years, I have been primarily in a classroom setting, but this upcoming summer, I will be pursuing research in preventative medicine, going on a medical mission trip to Mexico and volunteering at camps for children with type 1 diabetes and muscular dystrophy.
Each opportunity will allow me to put what I have learned in the classroom into practice soon rather than later, which I believe to be one of the most important parts of the learning process.
