Hi my name is Kaitlyn and I graduated from UC San Diego in June of 2019 with a major in Neuroscience & Physiology and a minor in Marine Science. I also have two Associate’s degrees, one in biology and one in physics from College of the Desert community college in Palm Desert, CA.... Currently, I am working as an administrative assistant at the Osteopathic Center of San Diego. I have worked there for a little over two years and I will continue to work there until I matriculate to medical school. I also have completed the 40 hours of phlebotomy training and I am currently waiting to be placed at an externship to complete my 40 clinical hours before starting a job at Precision Phlebotomy. While I was exposed to osteopathic medicine by my stepfather who was a psychiatrist before his passing in September 2020, I decided to go to medical school after I sustained a knee injury during a cross country practice and my PCP and orthopedic surgeon could not figure out what was wrong with me. It was not until I started to see Dr. Roger Mignosa at the Osteopathic Center of San Diego that I was exposed to osteopathic manipulation and realized that I wanted to practice that as well. I also plan to have a sports medicine focus as I want to be able to help young athletes who sustain life altering injuries. While in community college, I was involved in the MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) program and various clubs including the biology club, the chemistry club, and the chess club. I also competed on my school’s cross country team for almost two years before my knee injury stopped me. Once I transferred to UC San Diego, I joined a sorority, Alpha Omicrom Pi, and became involved in multiple committees during my two years there. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about UC San Diego or the process of getting into Medical School! Show more
