"My experience working as a medical scribe at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center ignited my interest in Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. I was inspired by the medical professionals’ passion to connect with their patients, despite the fast-paced demand of the Emergency Department. Geisinger’s values of kindness, collaboration and excellence unraveled in front of my eyes and resonated with me. I chose Geisinger Commonwealth’s MBS program to enhance my competencies in foundational science courses, become the best version of myself through the professional identity formation courses and increase my MCAT score. I knew this bridge would set me up for success!"
