Gaining the Knowledge & Tools to Pursue a Passion for MedicineDecember 12, 2017
The HES program at Truman State University provided me with all the knowledge and tools I needed to pursue my passion for medicine. My favorite things about the HES program were the small class sizes and the ability to build relationships with my professors. My professors were very accessible and willing to provide me with extra opportunities for learning and personal development. In addition, the challenging curriculum prepared me well for my graduate school classes.
I am currently working as a Physician Assistant in primary care at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in the Kansas City area. I can honestly say that Truman’s academic excellence got me to where I am today, and I wouldn’t change a thing. The HES program even helped me to fulfill my desire to complete a medical internship abroad.
Truman’s HES program truly invests in their students. My time at Truman will forever be some of the best years of my life!
