Name: Sopuru Onukwube. You can call me I.J.

School/Year: UT Health San Antonio, 2nd year medical student

Educational Background: B.S. Biology from Texas A&M University (2018)

Medical Interests/goals: Not leaning towards anything right now. Goal is to do the best that I can for the most people. To practice the best patient centered care and to find innovative ways to treat my patients better in whatever field I decide to go into.

Hobbies/Fun Interests: Reading, watching shows, hanging out with my friends!

“I didn’t know I wanted to be a medical doctor until my 2nd year in college. To add to that, I had just moved to this country so it was a brand new experience for me. I also wasn’t aware of the criteria needed to get into medical school, the importance of timing, the importance of community service, volunteer work and so many other things. It was a struggle which I’m glad to move on from and I know you will too. So I guess my thing is moving on in faith with what you have. Knowing your chances and doing the best you can with what you have.”
