Mallory-Wilson Spotlight

Rebecca Wyma
My MWCHE preceptor­ship was also the most in-depth phys­ician shadow­ing experience that I've ever had thanks to Miami. Over the course of 5 days I shadowed Dr. Paul Gehring, an obstetrics and gynecology specialist in Tulsa, Oklahoma and a Miami alum. I stayed with him and his family, which was really incredible because I got to see how he manages his work and personal life. This made me see the real life of a physician and portrayed a lifestyle that I could one day see myself potentially having as well.

Sammi Marshall
The preceptor­ship, which is basic­ally an oppor­tunity where stu­dents shadow under practicing physicians to gain experience, was coordinated by one of my favorite professors, David Pennock, a professor of biology, my advisor, and director of the Mallory-Wilson Center. I can talk to him about pretty much anything!

Christopher Beecroft
Some of my best experiences have been working as a residence assistant in Stanton Hall, which houses the Premedical Living and Learning Community (LLC) — all students planning to head off to some sort of health professional school. It has been a great way to be a role model, someone who has taken the same steps as the freshmen and sophomores have.

Morgan Nguyen
I only had Dr. [David] Pennock once in a seminar class, but as the director of the Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education, he has been very helpful as my premed advisor. He has assuaged my worries by offering me confidential and calming advice about my interest in attending medical school after graduation. His premedical seminar helps you get acquainted with the nitty-gritty of applying to medical school.

Tiffany Campbell
Most recently, I did a 10-week summer internship through the Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education to do neurosurgery research and shadowing at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. I shadowed a neurosurgeon, Dr. Sudhakar Vadivelu, over the entire summer and worked on clinical research projects with him. This has been one of my favorite college experiences, and I'm actually still working there once a week, developing some manuscripts for publication, and I delivered a conference talk in DC in October!
