Why did you choose to come to UMR? I chose UMR because of the medical based curriculum. Subjects that aren’t typically science courses incorporate medicine into the curriculum to provide students with a well-rounded background. I also enjoyed opportunities to hear speakers during Career Spotlights to learn what is available in the medical field beyond nursing or becoming a doctor.

What did your Capstone experience involve? My Capstone experience involved enrolling in Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences Medical Laboratory Science Program to become a certified Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS). This certification is nationally recognized by numerous hospitals allowing me the opportunity to work in a variety of different labs at a variety of different locations.
