July/August 2017: Amer Tamr

Amer Tamr is a sophomore pre-medical student at Wayne State University who is not just excelling in his studies, but outside as well!  In addition to his commitment to academics, Amer spends an extensive amount of time involved with Syrian Candidian Council that helps Syrian refugees resettle and integrate into Canadian society.  He also spends time in a Close Relations Laboratory in the Department of Psychology.  Amer is a huge advocate on the Muslim Student Association board and is also a mentor with the Big Brother Big Sisters (BBBS) Canada as an Arabic teacher.  

Amer is interested in pediatrics and pursues his interests by volunteering in the pediatric department at the Windsor Regional Hospital as well as another pediatric clinic in Windsor.  He has been committed to the idea of becoming a Pediatrician his entire life and hopes to achieve his goal.  Although his very passionate about pediatrics, he is also open to other specialties as he progresses through his pre-medical career.  However, Amer's dreams and ambitions don't stop there!  He not only has a huge interest in pediatrics, but also wants to serve on Doctors without Borders!  Amer wants to ensure that those in need don't have to be worried about a shortage of dedicated doctors.

Amer specifically mentions that the WSU Campuswide Pre-Medical Mentoring Program (CPM) has benefited him along the process as a pre-medical student.  He states that he was constantly stressed about the complex medical school application but feels more prepared now.  Amer says if it wasn't for his medical mentor, he wouldn't be as stress-free.
