I began working under Dr. Kennedy the summer before I began medical school, where I am currently in my first year at Georgetown University School of Medicine. I was extremely fortunate to spend time with him, and it truly jump-started my career into medicine. Dr. Kennedy pushed me as far as I was willing to go, such as having me take patient histories and chief complaints by the end of the summer and presenting patients to Dr. Kennedy and the rest of the team. The guidance, suggestions, and advice that I received from Dr. Kennedy is truly invaluable, and will transform the goals and attitudes I take with me as I am trained to become a physician. Additionally, I was able to use my tools in biostatistics obtained through my Master of Science in Public Health to contribute to his research team, resulting in authorship for several abstracts and manuscripts with more projects on the horizon. I look forward to staying involved with Dr. Kennedy alongside my education in medicine and contributing to the very successful and prosperous research team he leads.
