A 2002 graduate, Steven shares his thoughts about liberal arts as a foundation before going into medical school.
“A liberal arts education at Emory means getting exposure to a variety of intellectual fields and perspectives. My studies prepared me for practicing medicine in that I can interact with my patients in a multidimensional way. I can find better solutions to problems with a well-rounded perspective of the world. It also enriches my life with interests and hobbies outside of medicine.”
