John Brandsema ’02 ~ Attending Physician, Neuromuscular/ General Neurology & Electromyography, Division of Neurology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

I believe that my music major prepared me to be a better physician, allowing me to explore being creative, collaborative, and celebrate life with others with discipline that comes from working together to create art. I would encourage anyone who is concerned that they need to "stick to the standard plan" for a career that they see in their future, no matter what the field, to allow themselves to explore during their undergraduate experience. In the end, successful people find their path and it helps to have the tools provided by a well-rounded educational experience.
