Great DaneRachel's diverse studies have allowed her to face new challenges and form a broad perspective about medicine: "Choosing two majors, one a natural science, and the other a social science, has allowed me to take all different kind of courses. Also having a minor in Bioethics allows me to see things from the philosophical end of the spectrum."
