Before joining the UVA MD-PhD program, he attended The University of Texas at Dallas, where he studied neuroscience and played baseball for the Comets. Currently, he serves as one of three graduated student-athletes on the NCAA Board of Governors and works as an executive board member of his school’s Medical Society of Virginia chapter.
