"Majoring in English at KU instilled in me a love of literature and laid the foundation for my future career in medicine. Courses from Classical Romance to Children's Lit taught me how to explore the nuances of a narrative and discuss different viewpoints. I learned how to write effectively and clearly present my own ideas. My education from the English Department not only taught me to think critically and to write better, but showed me the importance of the human story and all its forms. My English degree has been invaluable and my time obtaining it some of the most rewarding of my life. As a physician, I have been able to use my skills as an English major each day as I learn the individual stories of every patient."
