Zane Sternberg, La Veta
2010-2011 BA/BS-MD incoming cohort
"I have lived on a small ranch, outside the rural town of La Veta, for my entire life. Many people have asked me whether or not I was ready to 'narrow down' my choices so early in life. But when I think of going into medicine, I feel as though more doors are being opened than closed; it is such a diverse field. I could teach, volunteer (e.g., Doctors Without Borders), work in a large hospital, or even practice in a small town—like my parents."
