My school feels like a family and everyone here is so helpful! The Peer Navigator team has been a great way to bridge the gap between 1st year and 2nd year medical students. We all have much more in common than we realize and becoming a Peer Nav has helped me feel more connected with my classmates while in medical school.
Piece of advice to share:
The best way to make the most of medical school is to do what you enjoy. Try to do things not solely to “pad your CV”, but rather get involved with clubs and projects that actually appeal to you. Keep doing those hobbies outside of medicine that make you an individual!
