Why did you choose to attend Pritzker?
In my search for a medical school that aligned with my personal goals - Pritzker was the perfect match. It's perfectly situated to serve the south side of Chicago, and that was the bigges factor in my decision. I wanted to be able to provide service to an underserved community, and the opportunities to do so at Pritzker were plentiful.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Chicago is amazing in the fact that the city can feel as big or as small as you want it to be. One of the best things about being in Chicago is exploring the many different culturest that are vibrantly thriving here. My absolute favorite thing to do is spend time by the lake - with destinations in mind being the numerous beaches along the coast line.
