Our speaker is Eric Hutfluss, an Alumni from the University of Waterloo who is currently studying medicine at the University of Limerick. He has come to give back to the university by helping those students understand what goes into preparing for studying medicine, what the medical program entails and whether or not medicine is the right thing for you?
