My love affair with medicine dates back as far as I can remember. So for me, attending a school that could boast the academic resources I need; and also, be located in the Caribbean was a no brainer. Washington University of Health and Science seems to have its hands in all aspects of academic and cultural offerings and really encourages us as students to take advantage of studying our basic sciences on the beautiful island of San Pedro. There are plenty of fun activities to do on the island such as paddle boarding, snorkeling, parasailing, and scuba diving. I definitely feel as though being at WUHS will make the time of my medical training richer and more memorable than it could have been at any other institution.
