“ I have put my blood, sweat, and (many) tears into this path and I know that this program will only assist me into taking my next step to becoming a physician. ”Katelyn Necco
Biomedical Student, Class of 2022
Tell us about your path towards medicine.
Since high school, I knew I had always wanted to be in the medical field, and my path in the field really started my junior year of high school. I took several classes to allow myself to graduate high school as a Certified Nursing Assistant and become an intern for the Porter County Coroner’s Office in Indiana. Shortly after graduating, I became Indiana’s youngest Deputy Coroner, and I also worked on several units in a couple local hospitals. It was during my freshman year of college that I discovered I wanted to become a physician one day. Since that day, I have put my blood, sweat, and (many) tears into this path and I know that this program will only assist me into taking my next step to becoming a physician.
What made you choose Midwestern University?
I chose to apply to Midwestern University after searching for various biomedical programs on the AAMC website. I luckily happened to stumble upon this program that just seemed to fit my exact path that I was on. Since I did live in Indiana at the time, I did have the option to apply to the Downers Grove campus, but I decided to step outside my comfort zone and apply to this school which was in a state I had never even stepped foot in.
What are you most excited about going forward?
I am most excited to see where my research in this program will lead me. I believe that my research found in this program will induce eagerness in the medical field by many individuals and I am excited to see where my career will lead to based on it.
