Meet the CPM Pre-Med of the Month

February 2018: Syed Rizvi

Congratulations to the February CPM Pre-med of the Month, meet Syed Rizvi!

Currently, Syed is a second year pre-medical student pursuing a degree in Kinesiology. Syed demonstrated his interests within and outside medicine through involvement with the American Medical Student Association and Muslim Interscholastic Tournament. Many students have different experiences that inspire their interest in medicine. Syed was initially exposed to medicine when he attempted to revive his friend after he collapsed and went into cardiac arrest. While he is keeping his options open about what type of physician he wants to become, Syed is most interested in the fields of electrophysiology and neurology. To learn more about Syed, read his responses to the questions below!

What is your favorite type of music?

Any Bollywood music, simply gotta love Bollywood.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

Lemon Basil, it sounds crazy… crazy delicious

What fictional place would you most like to go to?

I would love to visit Gravity Falls, Oregon and spend an eternity in the crazy, magical, yet normal place. (It's based on the Disney show Gravity Falls)

If you could only eat three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Chicken Biryani, Potato Curry (from Sy Thai), and Mangos. Nothing more, nothing less.

Would you rather live for a week in the past or future, why?

I would live for a week in the future so that I will know what is going to happen and when I return to the present I will be able to alter it to make sure the future will be to my liking.
