Emanuel loves medicine. It is the reason why he is headed to medical school in the fall of 2017 and the reason why he is so active on Student Doctor Network & Reddit. After graduating from the University of Virginia, Emanuel worked abroad in Italy, New Zealand, South Africa, and now in Washington DC. When he’s not watching SNL or playing chess, he works for a study abroad program and performs improv comedy in his down time. He hopes to revolutionize patient care and to do so with good humor, and he will be doing everything possible to keep his smile on during medical school.
