Hi, I'm Patty. I'm currently living in Chicago as a third year medical student at UChicago's Prtizker School of Medicine (clinical year in times of COVID is really something!). I went to UofM for undergrad where I studied biochem, and applied to the MM program as a weird “gap year” to give myself a broadened base of knowledge in business subjects. Although the program focuses a lot on recruiting for jobs in business, I found it really helping me move towards aspirations of creating positive change as a physician. I even worked to start a club that would provide longitudinal guidance and infrastructure for future MMs who are interested in careers in healthcare and life sciences. I'm not sure if that club is still around, but feel free to email me if you want to talk to me about my time in the program, my thoughts on the relationships that exist between business and medicine, business opportunities in healthcare, applying to med school, etc. Go Blue!
