Stritch School of Medicine, Loyola University of Chicago
I chose to pursue a combined medicine-pediatrics program largely because of my interest in global health. While this is a developing field in many programs, WMed has a strong and growing international health track. I was attracted to the structure that their curriculum offers and the support they have for students going to an underserved location, as well as the specific courses they recommend and accommodate into resident schedules. I'm only just beginning here at WMed but I'm excited to see where the next four years take me.
