Christin GiordanoSecond-year student Christin Giordano had been named to the American College of Physicians (ACP) Council of Student Members, one of 13 medical students across the United States to represent students in the nation’s largest medical specialty organization.

With more than 137,00 physician and 28,000 student members working, the ACP works to enhance the quality and effectiveness of healthcare by fostering excellence and professionalism in the practice of medicine.

Giordano received her physician’s assistant degree before deciding to apply to medical school to dig even deeper into the field of patient care. “I was pretty excited and flattered that other students thought I was qualified for the ACP position,” she said. “One of the reasons I applied is because I’m always looking for ways to get the College of Medicine’s name out there. I have a lot of information to share about what our students are bringing to the table.”

Dr. Manette Monroe, assistant dean of students and assistant professor of pathology, helped Giordano with her application.  “I am certain Christin will make a real impact and a lasting positive impression,” Dr. Monroe said.  “She is an  outstanding students, both in and out of the classroom. We are so fortunate to have her as a representative to such a prestigious national office.”

Christin will hold the student council position for two years, starting in April.
