Dr. William Hall: I never thought I was going to become a doctor. I was a biomedical engineer. I had a real passion for science, engineering, and programming. I also liked biology as a concept and as applied to helping people.

It wasn’t until the beginning of my senior year in college that I started to think about medical school. And it wasn’t until I began working as a biomedical engineer that I ultimately changed my career trajectory and went to medical school. I started my career as a biomedical engineer, and I pretty quickly realized that it didn’t give me the direct human interaction or tangible benefits that I desired in my work.

I tremendously enjoy being a doctor because I love science, and I love the applications of science. I like cool new science, and I love interacting with patients. Those two things make my job tremendously rewarding and fun. That’s really what got me here.
