Program: Biomedical Sciences
Stream of study: Regular
Career goal: I have a goal to go into the medical field for sure! I have an interest in either Pharmacy or Physician Assistant studies but understand how difficult it is to get in, so I'm making preparing my application!
How I get involved: Although classes take up most of my time, I TA and plan to TA more courses in the future (go BIOL240L!). I'm also a member of the UWaterloo premed club and a member of UW's Women in Stem club!
Why I love my program
Why University of Waterloo?
When I was browsing around on what Universities there were, it was super overwhelming as most people know. However, I notice that in a lot of schools, you do general science courses and then transition into a major in your 2nd year. I knew that wasn't something I preferred because I feel it would be too much when your program-focused courses were compiled into 3 years instead of 4. That's when I found UW's Biomedical Sciences program! I read through what the program entailed and loved it because all the courses were the subjects I was interested in at the time. When I toured UW, I knew it was where I wanted to be because I felt at home here (as corny as that sounds) and the campus has so many beautiful study spots- indoor and outdoor!
