Message from Dr. Rizal:

Hi UCSD AMSA members! I'm Dr. Rachel Rizal, and I grew up in Southern California. I am

passionate about mentoring premeds, and while in medical school, I co-authored a book,

Cracking Med School Admissions. I attended medical school at Stanford and trained as an

Emergency Medicine physician at Harvard. I am excited to answer your questions each month

about anything and everything related to your pre-med journey! Popular topics I get asked about are: volunteering, researching, shadowing, and taking non-traditional paths in medicine. You can read more about my background and my co-author's background here!
