Early clinical exposure and the smaller class sizes

Any advice for prospective students

Medical school can be a stressful and trying experience that challenges and pushes you to limits. Remembering the skills that got you here and developing new ones is part of the learning process of medical education and discovery as a doctor. CSPM does a great job of cultivating an atmosphere that is challenging and fun at the same time while pushing us to not only be great podiatrists, but doctors as well.

Extracurricular activities outside the classroom

SMU soccer/ basketball, church, piano, friends

In 10 years I see myself

Favorite thing about the Bay Area
