My name is Pia Wahi-Singh. I am a second-year medical student running for re-election as Medical Undergraduate School Representative.
Why I’m running:
I have greatly enjoyed serving as Medical Undergraduate School Representative this past year. I will capitalize on my knowledge of the role, the relationships I have built this year, and my extensive leadership and representational experience to effectively represent our interests.
