NSU Experience

The Biology program at NSU taught me a lot and really prepared me for going to NSU’s Osteopathic Medical School. I was able to participate in an Externship to Graz, Austria where I participated in transplant surgery and research. This helped prepare me for medical school and rotations. While on my rotations I was already prepared to manage patients due to this externship. To current students, my advice would be to work hard but make sure to try experiences that may challenge you. When I first started I was a quiet student but I became a teaching assistant for Anatomy and Physiology Labs with Dr. Roopnarine and was really able to break out of my shell and be more proactive.
