ZACHARY S. GULERGUNST. GEORGE’S UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE MD/MBA CANDIDATE (MS4)(917) 743-6286 | ZGULERGU@SGU.EDU
I am currently a fourth-year medical student at St. George’s University School of Medicine, graduating in June 2022, and have been completing my clinical rotations in Miami, FL. I am in pursuit of a one-year research and/or clinical opportunity, from July 2022 to 2023, to establish the skills necessary to carry out my own research projects as a future physician, enhance my competitiveness for a PM&R residency position, and to continue to develop my medical knowledge and clinical skills.
It wasn’t until my early, mid-twenties that I decided to pursue a career in medicine with the goal of becoming a Physiatrist. Since then, I have focused all my attention and efforts on this goal. Prior to my postbaccalaureate premedical program at Columbia University, I volunteered under the Director of Orthopaedics and Sports Rehabilitation at Mount Sinai-Beth Israel while attending courses in Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Exercise Physiology at my local community college. During my postbaccalaureate program, I volunteered for the medical team at several marathons in NYC, earned a clinical intern position to learn more about private clinical practice, and held three different research positions in Sports Neurology, Orthopaedics, and Public Health. In my research experiences, my responsibilities included, but were not limited to all aspects of clinical coordination, assisting with sponsored and multi-site research projects, assisting with IRB protocol preparation, and use of EPIC, Cerner, and RedCap. During medical school, I have continued to volunteer at various sporting events and will soon be completing electives in Neurology, Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. My prior clinical research experience and medical school training have provided me with the communication and clinical skills as well as the knowledge of medical terminology that may be required for any research position. Most importantly, I have always worked and thrived in a multi-disciplinary team setting.
To be a successful physician, I have consistently believed that involvement in ongoing research is an essential aspect of our duties because we utilize evidence-based medicine to guide our clinical recommendations. I have taken a longer path than most to reach my career goal because I am determined to have an integral role in the advancement of medicine through research. I have always been incredibly dedicated and motivated in my endeavors and will continue to put my best effort forward for any clinical and research teams that may consider me.
