Who is/was your favorite professor at SUNY Downstate College of Medicine and why?
I’ve had too many awesome professors and mentors that make it impossible to decide.
What is your favorite memory so far of your time studying at SUNY Downstate College of Medicine?
That pre-exam combination of freak out and solidarity that only happens late at night in the library with close friends.
What is/will be your specialty?
Halfway through 3rd year, I have really liked everything so far and I still see far too many options to choose a life-long specialty right now.
How has the Alumni Association for the College of Medicine at SUNY Downstate helped you (scholarships, clubs, events, white-coat ceremony, senior week, research, summer research, technology, healthcare in developing countries elective or other)?
The Alumni Association maintains a positive, helpful presence on campus with school-wide events and has also supported me personally with scholarship opportunities, without which I would not be able to make ends meet with the cost of medical education in the US in 2016.
Is there anything else that you think Alumni would like to know about you?
That I’m grateful for their support and someday will pay it forward to young medical students in the future.
Support for medical students since 1880. Join the Alumni Association-College of Medicine, SUNY Downstate, today!
