Hello Everyone! I would like to welcome you all to my blog. This blog is predominantly a way for me to share my experiences while being in a Caribbean medical school. I am originally from Canada, Ontario. I lived in Toronto since I was seven years old, and last January I moved to the beautiful island of Curacao to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor! In February, I started an Instagram account called “TypicalJourneyToMD” and to my surprise, many people were curious about life on an island and had many questions about studying medicine here. I commonly receive questions on accreditations of medical schools, residency, undergrad, MCATs, and the biggest question I get is my transitioning from nursing to medical school. I am currently quite busy with finals so I will elaborate on these things in my later posts so stay tuned!
Hi, my name is Ann Mary Behanan and I'm 23 years old. I became a Registered Nurse just over a year ago and now I am studying medicine. My two passions are running and medicine; and I have been blessed with the privilege to follow my dreams. This blog will be a lens into my life throughout medical school, and I can't wait to share this journey with all of those interested.
