“The thing that draws me most to medicine is how human it is. As a Classics major, I’ve been able to explore the brilliant side of humanity through a historical and linguistic lens, and I think that such a perspective is wholly applicable to medicine. To get to know and care for the human in each patient is a privilege, and it is what excites me about pursuing an MD.
I hope to help bridge that intersection as a physician, and also encourage other women and young people to pursue their passions without fear.”
Anna-Marie is a student leader in the Pre-Health Professions Club.
The club fosters community among pre-health students, raises awareness about on- and off-campus resources, and improves the success of pre-health students applying to graduate schools. The student club holds many events to support students interested in healthcare including a career panel, CPR certification, suture clinic, volunteering trips, guest speakers, and monthly meetings. Student leaders provide peer advising and mentorship to younger students and act as advocates for all pre-health students by coordinating with faculty and staff to develop meaningful curriculum and programming.
