“The Jesuit emphasis on social justice lit a fire of intellectual curiosity and compassionate desire for justice that inspired me to ultimately settle on my career path of medicine,” says Sarah, who is currently working in a Community Health Track residency at the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. The Crofton, Md., native says she chose to study at Loyola for its Honors Program and Loyola’s Jesuit liberal arts education. Sarah earned her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and philosophy in 2014 and her M.D. from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, in 2018. During her time at Loyola, Sarah was an Evergreen and played club soccer, and she participated in the annual BSA Fashion Show. Sarah, who is the first person from her family to become a doctor, says Loyola’s Pre-Health Programs helped her learn many facets of the medical field—including her literature, philosophy, and history courses, which helped her become well-rounded and prepared her to provide meaningful care for each patient.

I chose Loyola in part for the Honors Program and also because of my desire to dive deep into a liberal arts experience and wrestle with new and difficult concepts, works, and ideas.
