Tom is a second-year medical student at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Attending the University of Colorado in Boulder, Tom majored in molecular biology, integrative physiology, neuroscience, and biochemistry, graduating summa cum laude in 2015 with four bachelor’s degrees. He then spent a gap year working in EMS during which he tutored students in the EMT training program at his hometown community college.
At Hopkins, Tom co-directs the student curriculum review team, helping to keep the school’s pre-clinical sequence streamlined and student-friendly. He is also involved in epigenetics research through the Feinberg Lab, investigating the chromatin behavior of pancreatic cancer cells. Lastly, when he isn’t hitting the books, Tom loves to jam and perform with Cassie and the Bruits—a band of medicine students at Hopkins. He also enjoys film and novels, especially in the areas of science fiction and fantasy.
Over the years, Tom has helped a number of friends through the medical school application process, including giving several pro-bono presentations about successful MCAT preparation. Having been part of this process for people around him, Tom’s really excited to be part of the WCS team and to help you get into medical school!
