Both of Jack Zhang’s parents are doctors in China and he chose to follow in their footsteps. They encouraged him to broaden his horizons and think about American medical school. He said that his father, a gynecologist, inspired him. “He would do ten surgeries a day; he was literally saving lives each day,” said Zhang. He said he was looking forward to TouroCOM’s flipped-classrooms. “Touro was my first choice,” he said.
His favorite thing about America: “The air actually. While China is beautiful, the air quality in America is a bit better.”
What he misses most about China (aside from his family): “The food. Food made in my hometown is much, much spicier than anything you can find here in America.”
