Nathan is an undergraduate student in the Seven-Year Liberal Arts/Medical Education Program at Boston University. He is passionate about translational research and is currently involved with clinical ophthalmological research at Boston Children’s Hospital focusing on corneal pain processing and neurological research at Massachusetts General Hospital aiming to individualize therapy for persons with aphasia. Nathan also feels strongly about improving patient care by accounting all the factors that can affect a patient’s health and has engaged in research aimed at advancing public health policy. He enjoys community service and was heavily involved as a volunteer in institutions ranging from hospitals to libraries. Whether he was encouraging his peers to take their first step into the medical field or serving as a virtual tutor for students in communities disproportionally affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Nathan has always loved helping others. In his free time, he can often be found cooking, lifting weights, playing basketball, or binge-watching yet another show on Netflix.
As a former PremedHQ student, Nathan applied to various competitive BS/MD and traditional undergraduate programs, receiving many acceptances and hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships. He has a firsthand understanding of the PremedHQ method as well as the ins and outs of the application process, and is looking forward to sharing his knowledge and helping future physicians achieve their goals.
