My name is Samantha, and I am so excited to serve as your 2019-2020 AMSA President. You’ve probably seen me running across campus to the lab to work as a researcher, studying at the Honors College, volunteering at the Garrison on Fridays, or working at UMC as a Health Unit Coordinator. I am earning a dual degree in Microbiology and Psychology, and will be attending Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in pursuit of my MD/MPH starting this summer! AMSA has been an excellent guide to help me learn more about myself in preparation towards medical school, and has offered me the tools to become a strong candidate. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
