u003ch3u003eMy Experience at AUA:u003c/h3u003ernGraduating from UC Davis at 19 years old, Dr. Brenda Mai began applying to different medical schools in California but unfortunately wasn’t accepted into any. Unfortunately, her age was a concern as she would be 19 years old and schools felt she would be below the curb and lack the maturity to attend medical school. AUA accepted her based on her motivation and enthusiasm to be a doctor, as it was clear she wanted to be a physician but didn’t quite meet U.S. requirements to get into those programs. Dr. Mai is currently in the clinical pathology program in the University of Texas in Houston.

The educators were approachable and were willing to spend extra time explaining information at time of need for further clarification. As we transitioned to clinical medicine back in the United States, there was a vast variety of clinical sites that we were able to do our clinical rotations in. The administration was helpful in scheduling the rotations and would always try to accommodate our preferences for the rotations.

u003ch3u003eWhy I Chose AUA:u003c/h3u003ernu0022AUA was the most feasible option for me as it allowed me to be in a family friendly culture that I was familiar with. The coursework I did at AUA prepared me really well for my clinical rotations in the United States. In fact, I felt like I came into my residency much more prepared than most of my peers. They made sure we stayed on top on everything we needed to know.u0022

u003ch3u003eMy Experience at AUA:u003c/h3u003ernu0022In high school, I participated in a program that involved shadowing doctors, and I wanted something with that full scope, that full knowledge, where I’m doing everything or at least have exposure to everything and AUA had exactly that. At AUA, I had the opportunity to study with a dynamic group of students and professors from around the world.u0022
