Medical student Chad Teven earned a Bachelor of Science with highest distinction from the University of Michigan in 2007 and expects to receive his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in 2012. Chad Teven’s strong academic performance and research contributions have earned him honors such as memberships in the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity and the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society as well as research fellowships at the school’s Molecular Oncology Laboratory and Laboratory of Craniofacial Development. With a number of abstracts, presentations, and publications already to his credit, Chad Teven is also currently involved in two research projects. Working with Dr. Russell R. Reid, Chad Teven’s fellowships provide him with the opportunity to study new procedures that include the use of peptides and high-frequency pulsed electromagnetic fields for helping craniofacial bones to regrow in response to skeletal defects. Despite these commitments, Chad Teven still makes time to use his abilities and knowledge in support of community and global health care programs. He formerly acted as the President of the Adolescent Substance Abuse Program to help kids avoid drug usage, and he has also served with New Life Volunteering Society and CURE International to travel to Honduras and provide primary care to adults and children.
