In this episode we are joined by Ryan Nguyen, currently a third year medical student at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. Ryan is an exceptional medical student and shares his insights on how to overcome challenges and how to stand out as a medical student and a health professional. He has been blogging about his medical school experience at We were amazed, as you will be, to learn about all the opportunities that have been created from this single writing outlet.

Some of the topics that we dive into include health policy, med tech, and medical education.
