Mug Shot-1Aaron Owen writes about creating balance and success as an aspiring physician. He is a published researcher, world traveler, and married to his first love.

The essays featured on this site address issues common to medical students with a focus on academic performance, clinical skillsfinances, and lifestyle design. Much of the advice is based on personal experience, but even more is based on evidence from research and conversations with people far wiser than himself. He maintains this site believing that through collaboration med students can improve both the medical school experience and the level of care we are able to provide our future patients.

Aaron was born and raised in south central Wisconsin.  He graduated from Marquette University in May 2012.  Soon thereafter he and his wife moved to El Salvador where he spent 2013 researching the emerging problem of diet-related chronic disease in that country.  Beginning in August 2014, Aaron is a med student at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
