“After returning to the United States from a two-year church service mission in Mexico, I was anxious to pursue an education in medicine that would allow me to serve Spanish-speaking and other underserved communities. At my first medical school fair while attending BYU-Idaho, a DO school representative of approached me and discussed the osteopathic philosophy of treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit, and healing with one’s hands. I immediately knew osteopathic medicine was a perfect match for who I am and what I want to accomplish as a physician. I used my remaining time as an undergraduate student to prepare for and apply to only osteopathic programs. Number one on my list was GA-PCOM. The PCOM-Georgia campus is an exciting place! One of my favorite things about GA-PCOM is its unique blend of rich PCOM history, coupled with new academic facilities that provide an environment tailored for learning medicine. I love being part of an academic institution that is actively expanding and spreading its positive influence throughout the surrounding region. The future of osteopathic medicine looks bright, and I feel privileged to be a part of it.”
