Another Beginning

By Tyler Brobst

Welcome back! We are excited to launch Meet Mayo Med for its second year. Our goal has been to share the incredible stories of students at Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minnesota, both inside and outside of the classroom and hospital. We are looking forward to sharing more of these stories over the course of this academic year!

This week marked an important milestone at Mayo Medical School - members of the Class of 2019 began orientation and started their medical school journeys. We thought it would be appropriate for our first blog post of the year to focus on this amazing class. So who is the Class of 2019 exactly?

They are:

Competitive. Members of the M.D. class were selected from over 4,500 applications

Diverse. The class consists of 29 female and 25 male students. These students call 23 different U.S. States home. Some have recent roots in the countries of Germany, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Serbia and Ukraine.

Service oriented. Every single member of the incoming class has demonstrated a sincere dedication to serving others. They have been active in such organizations as:

  • Big Brothers/Big Sisters
  • Boys and Girls Club
  • Camp Kesem
  • Dorothy Day House
  • Foundation for the International Medical Relief of Children
  • Global Public Health Brigades
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Healing Hearts Across Borders
  • Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos
  • Project Healing Waters
  • Red Cross
  • Special Olympics
  • United Nations Relief & Works Agency

(just to name a few!)

Passionate. These students have distinguished themselves as accomplished musicians, dancers, writers, and artists. They are athletes, emergency medical technicians, combat medics, coaches, tutors, teachers, mentors, leaders, athletes, writers, researchers, scientists, soldiers, veterans, and inventors.

Needless to say, we're incredibly excited for the big things that the Class of 2019 will do at Mayo Medical School and beyond!
