Hello, my name is Kevin Nguyen and welcome to my e-Portfolio. Here you will find a collection of my work as well as my progress throughout my academic and professional life.
I am a first generation American, with my parents having come as immigrants from Vietnam. My academic interests have centered around science for nearly my entire life and as a result have gradually steered me toward a scientific career. Currently, I am a biochemistry and Chinese double major and as a result of some early clinical experiences and familiarizing myself with the medical field, I have naturally gravitated towards a career in medicine. In addition, my scientific interest has also led me to become heavily involved in research, which I have undertaken during my undergraduate years in the Burns Lab, conducting nuclear energy research. In the future, I hope that my medical career path will also allow me to be able to continue to pursue research interests in medically relevant areas in addition to clinical work as a physician. In my next year, I will be attending medical school at Loyola Stritch School of Medicine.
