Profile of the Class of 2014

Class Profile: 2014

Before deciding to change careers and pursue medicine, our students come from a fascinating variety of backgrounds. They may join us directly after completing their undergraduate education or after years in an established profession. Students in the class of 2013-2014 come from a wide range of careers, including professional orchestral violinist, corporate services & proposals administrator for a healthcare consulting firm, management consulting analyst, senior project manager for a Cloud-based software company, musician for Cirque du Soleil, Peace Corps volunteer for Uganda, veterinary clinic technician, medical intern, English teacher, clinical research associate, architecture project manager, and teacher for the visually impaired.

All of them made the decision to change their lives and begin the Scripps College Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program as the first step toward becoming a medical professional.

Emily Avis"Working with my peers was the strongest and most helpful part of the entire program. The Scripps Program truly attracts a special type of person: motivated, multidimensional, friendly, and humble all at the same time. I loved the non-competitive atmosphere of the program; we really helped each other learn the difficult concepts. I enjoyed that this collaborative team environment mirrored the teamwork approach to medicine as well, and I was thrilled to be able to learn so much from my classmates."
