Why did you choose Biomedical Graduate Education at Georgetown University?
I chose Georgetown’s program primarily because of the academic rigor and its reputation for preparing students to be future medical students and health professionals.
As a DMV Hoyas Biomedical Academic scholarship recipient, you were selected because your application "demonstrated a commitment to biomedical research and graduate studies at the Masters' level." What do you hope to accomplish here at Georgetown and/or what is your interest in biomedical research or graduate studies?
At Georgetown, I hope to build the skills necessary to approach my medical school studies with the kind of scientific curiosity and dedication that will make me the best physician I can be.
What is the best kept secret about the DMV area?
I would say the best kept secret is Old Bay seasoning! I use it on to add flavor to so many foods, and my out of town friends are always pleasantly surprised when I introduce it to them!
