Brandon R. Cantazaro, MD
He always knew that he wanted to help people. But it wasn’t until he started volunteering at an inner city clinic as an undergraduate that his career path became clear. He wanted to become a doctor and serve the underserved. Next step, find a way to make it happen. On the advice of several physicians that he worked with, he looked into UAG. Considering his goals, his desire for hands-on learning, and his love of culture and community, it seemed like the perfect choice. So he dove right in. Came to México. Lived with a host family. Gained a deep understand of the language and the culture. And except for five months when he returned to the U.S. to do rotations in Arizona, he lived and breathed medicine in Guadalajara for four years. It paid off. He came home prepared, matched for a residency, and eager to begin doing what he’d set out to do. Helping people the best way he knew how—by becoming a doctor.
