Conrad Stasieluk is a medical student that graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 2015 with a B.S. in Molecular Biology and minor in Chemistry. He is currently an MS1 at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
I am currently a first year medical student at Stritch School of Medicine. I am open to helping in any way possible, whether it be assistance with classes, application process, or networking.
A little more information about me: I was an Achieving College Excellence member and mentor at LUC, which is an organization for students who are first-generation, come from a high financial need family, and/or have a documented disability. I can provide some information on some of the barriers I faced when applying to medical school if that interests you! During my undergrad, I was heavily involved in collagen development research at LUC, Ramble Outdoors, the Department of Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, and the Catholic Charities organization in Chicago.
After I finished my undergraduate career at Loyola, I did post-discharge care for patients in a south-side Chicago hospital for a year before coming to Stritch School of Medicine.
As a first year medical student, I am currently involved in cancer drug research in the Otolaryngology Department, a volunteer phlebotomist for a free health care clinic, and teach medical Polish. As for what specialty I would like to go into, I am currently leaning towards a surgical specialty and/or oncology. But, in reality, your guess is as good as mine at the moment!
