Caitlin - Physician Assistant Student Ambassador
Hello, my name is Caitlin Keilty. I am from Baltimore, MD and attended The University of Notre Dame where I majored in English/Pre-Med.
When I graduated from college in 2010. I moved immediately to Charleston and have been here ever since! I love the beach, good coffee, and college football!
MUSC has outstanding resources and facilities. I love that the College of Health Professions has so many different programs, that there is always something exciting going on within the college. Both CHP and MUSC sponsor events that are a good way to get to know your classmates, and have a great time.
Charleston is a fantastic little town with so much history and character that it is impossible to compare it to anywhere else I’ve been. Originally from MD, the hot weather took some getting used to, but was a welcomed change! I love being able to go to the beach, explore downtown Charleston, and enjoy all the parks and outdoor activities that South Carolina has to offer.
When I first moved to Charleston, it wasn’t with the intention to attend MUSC. However, after living here for a year, I absolutely fell in love with Charleston and MUSC’s PA program. MUSC fells like a community, and there is always something fun to do and someone new to meet. MUSC’s first time pass rates are excellent, and the PA program ranks in the top 25 in the nation. Once I stepped foot on campus, I knew it would be my home for the next 27 months. After I graduate, I think that I want to work in Cardiology, surgery, or some combination of the two. I’m already excited for rotations and to practice all that I’ve learned thus far!
I am happy to answer any questions you have! Email me!
