Katharina  Dubyk,  Biology ’18

After my four years of education at Ithaca I hope to attend optometry school and eventually open my own private practice.

 

Andrew  Rodenhouse, Biology ‘16

 Shadowing experiences in the last year have strengthened my will to become a doctor. Upon shadowing, doing research here at Ithaca, and conversing with doctors, I know that a career in medicine is right for me. At this point, I do not know what specifically I would like to practice, but I have some ideas. Surgery has always been a fascination of mine as I love fixing things and working with my hands.
