University of Mississippi

Hi, my name is Johnny Yang. I’m a senior pre-med from Winona, Mississippi pursuing a B.S. Chemistry and B.A Biology with a Mathematics minor. As a member of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, I’ve had meaningful opportunities to serve as Ambassador and Senator in a supportive community of citizen scholars. On campus, I’ve also gained invaluable experiences as Alpha Epsilon Delta Health Pre-Professional Honor Society President, Associated Student Body Senator, Columns Society member, Pre-College Programs counselor and Competition Corps volunteer, and Lead MPower Leader. Locally, I’ve devoted time and effort serving as a volunteer. I’ve served as a Student Assistant for Volunteer Services at Baptist Memorial Hospital, as Lead Tutor for LeapFrog, and as a volunteer for Operation Vision Life. My education has allowed me to foster a passion for teaching as an organic chemistry laboratory teaching assistant and Hotty Toddy tutor. In Dr. Tschumper’s computational quantum chemistry group, I’ve also developed a passion for research where I hope to bridge the gaps between math, science, and medicine. Toward that goal, I have been selected to participate in the 2021 Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology: Summer Institute in Biomedical Optics at Massachusetts General Hospital. Here, I hope to learn pertinent skills as an aspiring radiologist or cardiologist. My Chief Medical Officer Shadowing Internship in Memphis has motivated me to contribute to the administrative side of healthcare after practicing clinically. In a short summary, I don’t regret my decision in choosing the University of Mississippi because of the unimaginable opportunities it has provided, including this CREW internship.
