I came to medical school as an older, nontraditional student, and was surprised to see how much personal and professional growth I accomplished here. During the course of my education, I found my voice to better advocate for my patients and myself in medicine. UCI School of Medicine has guided me through quite an interesting curriculum and provided generous flexibility, which may not have been possible at other institutions. -Violeta Osegueda, fourth-year medical student, Class of 2022
