The desire to become a physician was a conviction of mine from an early age. I entered UB knowing what I wanted to do and the sacrifices that I had to make in order to fulfill my dreams. I chose Biomedical Sciences as my major, and seeming as an act of providence, I was introduced to individuals who were in the position to point to and ajar doors that were beyond my perception. I have spent the past two summers after entering UB at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University participating in clinical research and learning fundamental aspects of clinical practices. Now, I am looking forward to what is in store for me from being a participant in the Summer 2016 CLIMB UP research program here at UB. The CLIMB UP programs has UB students working with UB physicians scientists and research faculty.
Congratulations Garfield Walker, an EOP, CSTEP, SSS and Honors student.
