“Currently applying to residency! Fourth year of medical school has been the best yet, where I have been fortunate enough to care for extremely sick patients during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in the fields of infectious disease and critical care. I am very big on medical education, and I hope to one day return to UIWSOM as a faculty member and maybe an infectious disease specialist.”
