Andrea PolitoChicago, Illinois, United States
Hi! My name is Andrea and I am a second year medical student. I graduated from Loyola in 2015. I majored in Biology and Spanish. After college, I took a gap year in which I worked as an EMT/tutored/volunteered before starting medical school.
At Stritch, I'm involved in Back on my Feet (a running club), the Physician Vocation Program (weekly meetings integrating faith into our professional development), several specialty interest groups (orthopedics, emergency medicine, pediatrics, etc.), and participated in the Medical Spanish program. This past summer, I did clinical research through the Department of Anesthesiology. I am happy to help with whatever you may need, whether that be answering questions, proofreading your personal statement, or discussing if becoming a physician is the right path in medicine for you (during undergrad I was also debating becoming a PA).
