Maywood , Illinois, United States
North Memorial Health
My name is Kate Nowakowski and I'm a third year medical student. I graduated from the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University in 2013 with a degree in theology. After college, I spent a year teaching with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and then a year in ethics research at Mayo Clinic.
Currently, I'm thinking about specializing in primary care, with a focus on working with underserved communities in the United States. In medical school, I'm involved with global health, bioethics, Students for a National Health Plan, Physician's Vocation Program and inter-professional activities. Outside of medical school, I play soccer and sing in a choir. I also enjoy cooking and volunteering in the Maywood community. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the application process, personal statements, taking a gap year or medical school generally.
