My name is Aaron Owen, and I am the Mad Med Student. To clarify, I’m not angry– I am a medical student in Madison, Wisconsin, USA (aka The Mad City). I recently began classes at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
My goal with this blog is to share the journey with you. That means you’ll experience med school from my perspective, a biased one. I won’t attempt to be objective about the process of becoming a doctor, because I probably couldn’t be anyway. What you’ll get are snippets of my thoughts and reflections about classes, relationships, professional development, and life in general. What you won’t get are many details about patient interactions or anything else that would violate HIPAA.
Thanks for coming along, and I look forward to your comments.
