Susan Samuel: 2014 Multicultural Scholar


“From the bright insulated rooms of the VA, to the hospital rooms a world away, I saw the difference doctors can make, and that’s what I want to be.” — Susan Samuel

Susan Samuel is a first year medical student at Temple University School of Medicine. Volunteering at the Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center piqued her interest in healthcare and set the stage to her unique experience of caring for patients in India. Being raised in an Indian household allows Susan the opportunity to view healthcare from a multicultural perspective as well as allowing her to be more cognizant of barriers.

Susan’s father is a heart attack survivor, increasing her drive to provide effective care.
