My name is Katelyn Sainz and I am a MD3 at Washington University of Health and Science. I did my undergrad at Arizona State University and graduated with a BS in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Genetics, Cell and Developmental Biology. I have wanted to be a physician since as long as I can remember. Growing up my Dad was in and out of the hospital often due to heart disease and he had some of the most compassionate doctors I’ve ever met. Even as a little kid they would talk to me directly and tell me what they were going to do for my Dad. I remember thinking I want to be a doctor just like them.
