Student Spotlight

SDOMStephen Line, DO 2018 Student DO of the Month

Here’s what his classmates and peers had to say “Student Doctor Line embodies professionalism and true passion for the field of medicine in all aspects of his life. From our first weeks at WesternU, Stephen took the initiative to organize mock patient encounters and SOAP note writing sessions with our classmates. This act ultimately set him on the path toward becoming Head ECM TA where he inspires and helps OMS-I’s develop their clinical skills and humanism. Stephen also frequently posts his lecture summaries to our class Facebook page and many deem them extremely useful! He is overall an excellent representation of the Class of 2018!”
