Ivy Blandon Caribbean Med School StudentMy name is Ivy Bladon and I am currently in my MD2 semester here at Washington University of Health and Science. I graduated from Penn Foster High School in 2013 and I was born and raised here on the island of San Pedro, Belize. Recently, I have been elected to be a senator with SGA, therefore I’m excited to be working with my fellow classmates and participating in the activities/workshops we will have in the future.

Some people say that they choose medicine, but I’d like to think medicine choose me. My dream is to become a licensed physician and move forward to my ultimate goal to become a medical examiner. I thank SGA and WUHS for giving me this wonderful opportunity to make a difference!

Maurie Gomez Caribbean Med School StudentMy name is Maurie Gomez and I am a senator of SGA at Washington University of Health and Science. I hope to be able to experience from being a senator and interacting more with my classmates throughout this.

I finished high school in June 2013 and on January 2014 I took the pre medical program at WUHS, also I am currently an MD2 in the basic science program. I choose to study medicine because this career has always interested me and I plan to give back to my community. I hope to establish a Pediatric clinic in my hometown in the near future.

Asim Khan Medical StudentMy name is Asim Khan and after spending 20 years as a businessman, author and educator, I have changed gears to focus on improving the lives of others by becoming a physician to serve the public’s healthcare needs and using my business skills to deliver affordable healthcare to the underserved.

I’m from Newport Beach, California and deciding to attend WUHS was an opportunity of a lifetime as I’m an unconventional medical student with a majority of my professional and academic background consisting of law and business. Entering medicine has been a long time goal and after spending significant time at Long Beach Memorial Hospital shadowing an Oncologist, I found myself convinced that healing others is my true calling.

As such, my new journey towards my medical doctorate as a Summer 2016 term MD1 student and Student Government Body Senator at the Washington University of Health and Sciences is going to be a new fulfilling experience that will allow me to affect people’s lives and health directly for which I am grateful.

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.
