Abstract:  A seminar for those more extroverted engineers who, to quote Dr. Koenig, “want to go to the dark side.” This rather informal talk will go over how to translate yourself from bioengineering student to medical student. It will focus on what you need to do to ensure you meet all of the “hard” requirements, such as ensuring you take the appropriate prerequisite courses, as well as “soft” requirements needed to attain that coveted medical school interview. Coming from an engineering background definitely gives you an edge! However, medical schools are not just looking for brains- they are looking for people who are truly interested in medicine, people, and continual learning. With a little bit of extra effort, you too can join the dark side that is the medical profession. Don’t worry, the dark side isn’t all study! It has people! And cookies!


Emily Martin, MEng, is a bioengineering graduate from the University of Louisville. She is a current third year medical student in the University of Louisville School Medicine. She has a variety of research experiences, including researching spinal cord injury with Dr. David SK
Magnuson, drug delivery with Mrs. Dr. Patricia Soucy, and irreversible Electroporation for cholangiocarcinoma with Dr. Robert Martin.
In her free time, she is involved with the University of Louisville School of Medicine Student Council, hangs out with her cat (and that weird bioengineering PhD student Nick Allen), and makes horribly unprofessional flyers.
