My advisor was phenomenal and helped me navigate the shipwreck that is medical school admissions even in the most challenging of times. The advice, edits, and support that I received though med school coach undoubtedly aided in my success to attend my top choice allopathic program in the fall.


Dr. Scott-Hawkins graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in World Arts and Cultures with a concentration in dance and a minor in pre-medicine. While applying to medical school, she took a year off to work as a Clinical Research Coordinator at Charles Drew University where she and her team published their work in the Journal of Investigative Medicine.
