Alumni Profile

Michael Daum

Class of 2007

Michael Daum

As a first-year medical student at IU Medical School in Indianapolis, Indiana, Michael Daum knows the challenges he faced at the University of Evansville have helped him on his path to becoming a physician. "I would say the challenging atmosphere and hands-on teaching offered at UE helped me become a focused individual unafraid of 'hard classes.'"

Michael believes UE professors were beneficial to him as he explored his educational goals. "Professor Joyce Stamm and Professor Brian Ernsting were crucial in helping me determine the best way to attain my dream of getting into medical school. As an athlete, it was difficult to manage both golf and my course work, but the professors were very encouraging and understanding and provided all of the advice I needed to reach my goals."

It was Michael's opportunity to complete undergraduate research with Professor Stamm in genetics and development that prepared him for graduate school. "Working with Dr. Stamm helped me realize I could handle in-depth material and gave me the confidence I needed to become a better student and person. I used the skills learned in the lab while earning my Masters in Biology and working as a Research Technician at IU Medical School completing work in pharmacogenomics. The next step is finishing my MD and becoming a primary care physician."
