MedServ Fellow, Wilmington, NC
Highlights from my Sociology career have definitely been interacting with all the people that run the program, especially you Laura! I have loved the people running the department. Another highlight was designing and getting so much feedback on my junior research paper. I really loved my junior tutorial and I learned a lot...
Post-grad, I am moving to North Carolina to work in a Health Clinic in Wilmington, NC as a MedServ fellow. I am pre-med, and I want sociology to inform the way I practice medicine and what field I choose. After taking sociology classes, I learned that primary care physicians are actually in short supply despite all of the people going to medical school. Learning that made me more interested in primary care, and after shadowing a primary care doctor the summer before my senior year, I decided I wanted to look further into the field. The fellowship I am doing is specifically geared to help people gain experience in primary care before going to medical school. In a way, sociology has helped me determine my medical specialty already (at least for the moment).
