“Barry University gave me the opportunity to pursue my personal academic interests while providing a supportive, encouraging, and rigorous learning environment. While studying Biology, I discovered my passion for academic medicine, human anatomy and physiology, and interdisciplinary and educational research. As a student, anatomy lab teaching assistant, researcher, and musician, the Department of Biology encouraged me to be creative and a free and critical thinker. It was my science education at Barry that prepared me for medical school, and subsequently a residency in diagnostic radiology. I owe my success to the dedication of the people with whom I interacted within the Department of Biology, and remain confident that the education one obtains through the department will prepare anyone to be a leader in any field.”
