I not only strive to apply scientific findings to treat my future patients, but also hope to gain inspiration from my patients to advance scientific knowledge. I believe the ideal way to apply my interests, and to best serve my community, is as a physician-scientist. The MD Anderson 1st Year Medical Student Program would offer me the opportunities
