“One of the main factors I was looking for in a medical school was the best fit for me.  If I would be paying all this money and spending the next several years of my life there, I wanted to be somewhere I could learn to be a great physician, but even more importantly, a better person.  As I near the end of third year, I have no regrets and feel that the collaborative nature of the students here is unique and refreshing, considering the traditional stereotypes of the medical school environment.  The great faculty and rotation sites we have all around Chicago have allowed me to see a variety of patients and clinical scenarios.  I hope that as I progress in my career, I too can give back and help future doctors gain some of the opportunities that CCOM has opened up for me.”
