Phase One Preclinical
Welcome to a Day in the Life of a medical student in the preclinical years. I am originally from St. Louis and was ecstatic to be returning for my medical education after spending four years in Nashville. Washington University is an amazing school with outstanding faculty, students, research and clinical opportunities.
8:30 am: I am one of two student leaders of the WUSM Sustainability Club. This year we focused our efforts on reducing waste and promoting recycling. I am very proud of our most recent initiative: providing reusable containers for student use during lunch talks. We have already instituted compost collection and use only compostable plates and cutlery. With these new “Eco-to-Go” containers, we are able to eliminate the use of plates entirely!
