The best part about my education at Illinois Wesleyan was the diversity of experience I was able to gain. As a Biology and Hispanic Studies double major at a small, liberal arts institution, I was able to pursue a broad range of passions, whether it be joining a research lab, volunteering within the community, studying abroad (Barcelona), or taking classes in a variety of subjects just because I found them interesting. I was able not only to receive rigorous preparation for medical school, but also to receive the support I needed to develop other interests and to achieve each of my personal and professional goals. As a medical student, this diversity of experience has allowed me to provide unique perspectives in the classroom setting and to better address the needs of patients from all walks of life.
