Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine – Bradenton
Undergraduate Studies: BS in Biology, The Ohio State University
“The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) curriculum at LECOM-Bradenton was the perfect fit for me. In PBL, students develop the skills required for lifelong learning. Medical practice in our time is rapidly changing, and this foundation encourages plasticity. I’m forever grateful to the faculty and staff, who are all so personable and supportive. I’m convinced that these are among the strongest reasons why LECOM-Bradenton consistently has the highest COMLEX scores and pass rates in the country. It definitely makes it easier to study surrounded by sunshine and palm trees!
“As a DO, I hope to make a difference by being an example to my patients by promoting a balanced, healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise. Having personally benefitted from osteopathic manipulative therapy, I believe it is an effective adjunct to achieving wellness.
“LECOM-Bradenton has a strong reputation for community service, with more than 30,000 hours logged last year. During my undergraduate studies, I volunteered extensively, and I believe an important component to balance is giving back."
