Why Medicine "When I was in second grade, I was diagnosed with a rare fatal heart arrhythmia. It ended up being a misdiagnosis, but I visited a cardiac pediatrician in Chicago, Dr. Barbara Deal. Until then, I was terrified of doctors, but Dr. Deal was really calm and she sat down and explained what was going on—she even took the time to draw a human heart for me. She was the first doctor that I looked up to and wanted to emulate. I wanted to help kids in similar situations."

Robin Frake said she had an epiphany during a PR class. One group of students was assigned the task of creating an advertising campaign for a hospital after a disaster. “I realized I didn’t want to be on the business side of this or advancing a corporate interest,” recalled Frake. “I wanted to be out there helping people.”  She spent her gap year working as a medical scribe at a local hospital and called the day when she found out she was accepted to TouroCOM, the “greatest moment of my life.”

Why Medicine "I never had any interest in medicine growing up or even in my undergraduate career. After my undergraduate degree, I moved to New York City to pursue a career as a dancer and an actor. After a few years, I got really sick. I was undiagnosed for about six months with an auto-immune disease. Having this experience of being sick without insurance made me think about studying medicine. I felt like there was this whole world of people who are suffering and getting lost in the system. I felt that because of my experiences, I could really offer them something."

Faye Hisoler, whose family hails from the Philippines, said she was attracted to the medical field because of her aunt’s reluctance to see doctors. Hisoler’s aunt passed away from late stage breast cancer that might have been curable had it been diagnosed earlier. After graduating from the College of the Holy Cross, she pursued a Master’s in Public Health at Boston University focusing on epidemiology. “I wanted a broader knowledge of healthcare,” she said. After finishing her Master’s, she decided to apply to medical school. “I realized I couldn’t have a desk job,” said Hisoler. “I wanted to see patients.”
