Program: Southern Medical Program
Year in Program: 1
Growing up in a rural town, I saw the health care disparities that our communities faced. My friends and family had a hard time traveling long distances to see doctors. I want to take my love for science and health and apply that to my future career as a doctor while helping rural communities gain the proper health care facilities they deserve.
UBC’s distributed sites help students stay close with their friends and family while they make their way through the challenging experience that is medical school. This opportunity gives me the chance to become a doctor while staying true to my roots. Having the support of my loved ones while serving in and close to where I grew up made UBC’s medical program the best choice for me.
I’m looking forward to meeting everyone in the program and getting started with my journey through medical school! Along with school, I’m hoping to get involved with the community and join some of the different clubs that UBC has to offer. I’m excited to be moving back to the Interior after spending the last few years in Vancouver pursing my undergraduate degree.
