Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


I make a great Schulich Leader because of my curiosity and willingness to learn, and my understanding of how teamwork facilitates success. My curiosity has led to my involvement in medical research. The highlight of my research exposure thus far has been having the opportunity to witness how a team of people with different backgrounds can come together to achieve great things. With this understanding, I hope to work within many diverse team settings in the future, to help find solutions for unanswered questions, and address the unmet needs of patients tomorrow.
