Erik is excited about exploring the intersection between patient outcomes, medical device design, and health care delivery. He came straight to medical school from Johns Hopkins University, where he studied Biomedical Engineering and focused in Sensors, Instrumentation, and Micro/Nanotechnology. Through various design projects, he developed an appreciation for the challenges of creating products that are medically practical, fiscally responsible, and engineeringly feasible. He hopes to develop a better understanding of hospital processes and how to optimize them in combination with new technologies. Erik is excited to learn more about how medical care can be better provided to patients of all backgrounds not only here in the United States, but also in other countries around the world.
