Sandra G. Lozano, MD
She was looking for a parallel path to becoming a doctor, but what she found at UAG was a better one. She discovered a place that she would grow intensely fond of, and a group of peers with whom she’d share life-changing experiences and create special bonds. And most importantly, she found lots of hands-on clinical training, and even surgical skills training, that started in the first semester—instead of in the third semester like at most U.S. medical schools. Advanced training that made her more than ready to come back to the U.S. for surgical rotations in New York, where she realized that she was already way ahead of U.S. student candidates in the program. She came to study medicine and left as a confident, well-prepared physician with a new family of cohorts and a thousand memories of life enriching moments.
