Rebecca Hammond was drawn to Creighton so she could combine her interest in global health with a career in medicine.
Global health is exactly why she joined the inaugural class of the Arrupe Global Scholars Program, which focuses on health equity and awards both Doctor of Medicine and Master of Public Health degrees in five years.
Here’s what Rebecca had to say about Creighton and the program.
What made you want to get into medicine?
- As a physician, I hope to be an advocate for my patients and for those who face health inequities, both domestically and abroad.
What has your experience in the Arrupe Global Scholars Program been like so far?
- In the Dominican Republic, my peers and I learned from many global health practitioners and local leaders who shared their own experiences working in global health. I’m excited to continue learning alongside my peers.
