Alumna in the Spotlight: Amy Rejaian

Current Occupation/ Title: Resident Physician

Academy: Health Sciences

Favorite Memory: Going on HOSA field trips and cheering on my cousin, Ingrid, as she played for our hockey team. 

After graduation:
After high school I attended the University of Miami and graduated in 2007 with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry.   
In the spring of 2009 I began medical school at AUC (American University of the Caribbean). Many of my most treasured memories stem from my time in St. Maarten, where I completed the basic sciences portion of my schooling. After that, I returned to the U.S. and completed my clinical rotations in both Miami and NY hospitals. 

I am extremely grateful to say that last month I graduated med school and was fortunate to match into my top choice for Family Medicine. In just a few weeks I will be starting my residency at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. 

My plan for the future (if I’m lucky) is to work for an organization like Doctors Without Borders, where I can travel the world and do a bit of good at the same time.  In the meantime, I’m sure that residency will have me dedicating all of my spare time to sleeping, studying, and sleeping some more.
