Emory - Cardiovascular Perfusion Student Ambassador
Hello, I am Emory, a first-year student in the Cardiovascular Perfusion program at MUSC. I am orginially from Roanoke, VA, but I received my B.S. degree in Biology from the University of South Carolina. Go Gamecocks!
I chose MUSC because of the outstanding reputation of the Medical University, my program faculty, and that of Charleston, S.C. Here at MUSC, we have one of the best, if not the best, Cardiovascular Perfusion programs in the country. Our professors have an outstanding academic and professional background, and Dr. Joseph Sistino is well-known for his academic and research contributions to the field. At MUSC, we have one of the leading simulation operating rooms with a state-of-the-art simulator that prepares students for the operating room. After touring the university and seeing the resources offered here, my decision was an easy one. The downtown Charleston location and great weather year round is just another benefit. I would love to remain in the Charleston area following graduation, but may move depending on career placement.
The College of Health Professions has great facilities and faculty. The professors take a profound interest in their students and the resources provided aid in the learning experience. All of our classrooms are outfitted with smart-room technology enabling students to go back and review lectures online while studying and prior to exams.
Charleston was recently voted the friendliest city in the country, and I think it certainly lives up to that name. It is a great place to live and go to school. Charleston has the big city feel without being in the big city. There are countless things to do in the greater downtown area, and you are only a short drive from the beach and the SC Lowcountry.
Don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
