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.
5:15 pm: At the end of the day, I head up to my carrel to study. Today, however, is a special day because we are ranking our selections for our clinical year schedules. As you can see, there’s not much studying getting done as my carrel mates and I strategize how to make sure we get the best schedules for next year. My classmates, left to right, are Jordan Jacquez, Sarah Wondmeneh, Christelle Samen and Rukayat Taiwo.
