Personal Statement  I came to the Indiana University School of Medicine with the intent to pass on to medical students and psychiatrists in training my passion for quality patient care. I have gotten involved at IUSM by joining the Professionalism and Role Recognition Competency Committee, the Component I Committee, and the Introduction to Clinical Medicine course management. I enjoy challenging students and residents to develop the best thinking and planning skills they can to prepare them for a lifetime of practice.
