picture of studentThis program has opened up my eyes to many neurological subjects. Additionally, it has been a great foundation to advance in the field of biomedical neuroscience. My hometown is Orlando, FL, where I achieved the majority of my educational background, but very recently, I relocated to Fort Lauderdale, FL. Hence, early on in my academic career, my goal was to combine a unique interdisciplinary curriculum, which included pre-med during my undergraduate studies, and mental health training during my graduate studies, with a focus on neurobiological behaviors. Thus, with some of the most exquisite educators in the field, and much concentration and hard work from my part in this program, I was able to learn the importance of biomedical neuroscience in different outlooks. University of Florida is known to be one of the most reputable universities in the nation, appointing some of the best professors and students, and I’m very proud and humble to be one of the first two graduates of the program!
