Why did you chose Walsh?
I chose Walsh University because of the great scholarship opportunities they offered. Also, the University had a strong and rising science program that provided research opportunities and other experiences that would prepare me for my future. Another benefit was that I had several friends that went to Walsh who really enjoyed their experiences.
Describe briefly what you do in your current job:
I am now beginning my third year of medical school, which is my first year of work in the hospital. My first two years in medical school were mainly focused on basic sciences in the framework of medicine. With this preparation, I am now ready to care for patients and hopefully help those in need.
How did Walsh prepare you for your current job?
Walsh University prepared me for medical school in several ways. The Science division and its professors equipped me above and beyond what I needed to start medical school. In addition, Walsh's Honors Program provided me with the avenues to further develop critical thinking and writing skills in areas outside of science that have served me well in my career. Finally, social and volunteer activities at Walsh helped me to understand the value of service and developing lasting and valuable relationships.
What advice would you give to someone who is considering attending Walsh University?
Congratulations! You are about to start a whole new journey and exciting part of your life. Make the decision that is right for you, but know that if you choose Walsh you will love it and have a great experience. When you start at Walsh, make as many friends as possible and find things to get involved in that you are passionate about. Work hard at school and have as much fun as you can. Also, don't be afraid to seek out advice from upperclassmen or alumni. Good Luck!
