Summary

I am currently a third year medical student at the American University of Antigua. I have successfully completed my basic sciences while maintaining a 3.0 GPA. I also have a degree in radiation science and health physics which I believe makes me an ideal and unique candidate for any position. 

Education

Education

Bachelor of Science

University of Ontario Institute of Technology

In 2007, I graduated from the University of Ontario's Health Physics & Radiation Science Program. This program is a multi-disciplinary program with studies in biological science, chemical science, and heavily based in physics and radiation. Courses ranged from Dosimetry, to Biology, Organic Chemistry, Radiation Machines, Nuclear Physics, Power Plant Operation, and Radiation Protection.

May 2009 - Present

American University of Antigua (AUA)

From May 2009 to August 2010 I complete my four semesters of basic science at the American University of Antigua. It was here I established my diagnostic skills and basic medical knowledge. Some of my courses included; anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, and introduction to clinical medicine. 

During this time I also participated in two AUA health fairs, were students provided basic medical assessments to the local community, and practiced history taking. I also had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for immunology. 

Sep 2010 - Dec 2010

Fifth Semester - AUA
The fifth semester serves as a bridge into the clinical sciences. The components of this semester include; integration of the basic sciences into clinical applications, supervised self study, preparation of the USMLE Step 1, and clinic work

The majority of my clinic work was done under Dr. LaTara Demps at Atlanta Surgical Consultants. My duties included examining patients, taking histories, conduction post-op interviews and reports, and delivering a presentation on biliary surgical procedures.
