During her time in Evanston, Shirin pursued a political science major, where she honed her analytical and writing skills. At Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Shirin ranked within the top nine students of her class, was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) honors society, and graduated sum cum laude with honors in research. She was heavily involved with HPME administration, including the interviewing and recruiting of high school students, as well as the advising and mentoring of younger HPME classes. She has co-authored multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals, presented at national and international meetings, and has a keen interest in clinical research. After spending seven years in Chicago, Shirin recently returned home for the next phase of her training. She is currently completing internship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and will ultimately pursue Dermatology residency at one of the most prestigious Dermatology residency programs in the country, New York University.

Shirin feels privileged to be pursuing a career path in which she can help people every day, and is excited about the opportunity to help younger students enter the field as well. Shirin believes through hard work and strategic planning, you can absolutely achieve your dreams.

Accepted to my #1 choice! and I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so much for helping me throughout this long process (almost one year)! You truly made me the best applicant I could be from writing update letters to get off the waitlist last year, to writing a new personal statement and editing my entire application, to finding more volunteering opportunities, to getting a research job, secondary essays, and interview prep! Words can not express how thankful I am to have had you as my MedSchoolCoach. I really could not have done it without you. Thanks for being so patient with me and always ready to give me a pep talk and making me believe that this was all possible. I wanted to tell you all this over the phone, but I would have gotten too emotional and started crying because of how amazing you are and how you played such an integral role in helping me achieve my dream. So instead I am crying tears of appreciation and joy while I write this email 🙂
