Medical education has been my greatest passion throughout medical school. Being able to help others understand complicated concepts in medicine with creative and exciting ideas is what I want to do for a living.
As a student council member, I am working with one of the most consequential brands in my medical education career. First aid 2020 and Rx360 shaped how I look at medical education and learning for my STEP 1. Learning from the best in the business regarding online education, acquiring insight into how these medical education initiatives are born and shaped has been a giant step in the direction I want my medical education career to go.
Collaborating with other passionate medical educators is an incredible experience. Learning from people who live in different countries, have different cultures, medical school experiences and educational methods expands my horizons on what truly great medical education could look like.
I am so excited to be able to use my skills in research at Brigham and Women’s and my knowledge from GCSRT program to help translate student council projects into conference presentations and publications.
I hope to contribute my quota to improve medical education and work with others with like minds/ passion. I hope to also gain more exposure as I build up my future career as a physician and medical educator.
I am so grateful to my medical school for the education that I’m getting. I am also cognizant of the ways that the world — within medicine and outside of it — is changing around us. I am excited by the idea of helping to shape a system from which I have benefitted from so much, and to make it even more accessible, equitable, and innovative for classes to come. Finally, I really look forward to meeting other students from other schools and learning from them. Medical school can be challenging and therefore also insulating, and I think that the Student Council helps broaden my thinking and learn from and be challenged by fellow Council members.
I hope to make a large-scale impact on medical education and how we currently approach teaching health policy and public health. I hope to expand upon the current model that is centered around understanding seemingly abstract concepts, and move to ground them in practical experience, innovation, and implementation.
