“It is most humbling and by far one of the greatest privileges to become a physician. This decision to pursue a career of service & devotion to fellow man is one made with reverence, and my choice to attend IAU in actualizing this dream has proven to be one of the best decisions of my life. Not only did I receive excellent training from some of the sharpest minds I have ever come across, I was also able to do so while living on one of the most beautiful islands on Earth. I was surrounded by members of staff, who became like family and have worked tirelessly with me to reach this goal. In all of this, IAU continues to lay a foundation upon which students can build to attain goals that might have once seemed daunting, while providing an environment for growth & self-development “.
