Welcome to wannabmd.com! My name is Courtney! This blog is where I share my passions with all of you! I’m currently an undergraduate student at a small, liberal arts college on the east coast! I am a psychology major on a pre-med track, which makes my path a little different.
I have always had an interest in science, but I didn’t start thinking about doing something in the medical field until middle school. Neither of my parents work in healthcare, so the only exposure I had to medicine was through my aunt, who is a nurse.
In high school, my interest in medicine expanded and I began shadowing individuals in all areas of healthcare (PT’s, nurses, PA’s, doctors, ect.) My senior year of high school I did a 12 week internship, 6 weeks with a physical therapist and 6 weeks with an OB/GYN. After that experience, I knew I wanted to go to medical school.
I am now in my second year of undergrad. While, it hasn’t been easy, I am enjoying every moment of it! Through this blog, I want to share the things that I am passionate about and provide insight/advice from my own experiences.
The rode to (and through) medical school isn’t an easy one, but I am so excited to share this journey with all of you!
