Hi, I’m Roy Handelsman. I’m a graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara in 2012. I studied Computer Engineering and took a course load emphasis in pre-medicine. I’m currently on the journey to medical school, starting my first year in the Fall of 2014.
I’m often asked, “why computer engineering?”
Well, why not? Since my childhood, I’ve been passionate about computers but I’m also driven to medicine. While physicians generally practice clinical medicine, some do so while also advancing the field with new discoveries or treatments. Engineers, on the other hand, generally work on projects advancing the technology around us. While computer technology is already part of medical treatment, it’s really only hit the surface. There’s so much more modern technology can do to assist in medicine. So why not combine the two things I love and try to make a difference while I’m at it?
Thanks for visiting my mini-site, and I’ll be sure to add more content soon enough!
