“Studying English at UIC has allowed me to become not only a better reader and writer but also a stronger critical thinker. I have learned how to read for and understand the details or subjective truths in order to illuminate broader messages, translating the particular into the universal. I hope to apply what I have learned as an English major to my career as a physician-writer, understanding patient narratives to identify ways to improve healthcare delivery.”
