Meet the CPM Pre-Med of the Month

March 2019: Vincent Dolgikh

Congratulations to the March CPM Pre-med of the Month, meet Vincent Dolgikh!

Vincent is a first year public health major with a minor in Spanish. In addition to being involved with Humanity First, La Vie Detroit, and Hispano Club, Vincent is one of our newest pre-medical student ambassadors! Although Vincent is in his first year as a pre-med student, he has a clear vision of his goals here at Wayne State and as a future physician. Vincent's interest in medical school stems from his desire to change and improve on the disparities currently present in healthcare, specifically in terms of communication with minorities. His experience working as a medical assistant in a bilingual clinic helped him realize the level of trust and improved quality of care that is reach through effective communication between patients and healthcare professionals. While unsure about the type of physician he wants to become, Vincent invisions himself making a large influence on the medical system and contributing to healthcare on a global level. To learn more about Vincent, read his responses to the questions below!

What hobby would you get into if time and money were not an issue?

I would love to remodel homes and do interior design if I had ample money.

If you could turn any activity into an olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a medal for?

I can fake any language and believe I would win the goal medal at gibberish!

What would be an amazing adventure to go on?

Hiking through beautiful scenery in an exotic place with interesting food and people, or getting lost in some thousand year old city.

If you didn't have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

I would write more music, double major, work more, and just do everything that I already love with all that extra time!

Do you have special talents or hobbies?

I sing/songwrite and have a 13 song album influenced by 80s and 90s music on multiple platforms. The album title is A.S.E.I.D.A- a school event I didn't attend.
