Jim Light ’07

Major: Biochemistry, Music
MD Anesthesiology Resident, Temple University Hospital



“I am a physician anesthesiologist. I perform anesthesia for all areas of surgery at Temple Hospital in Philadelphia, PA.

I would say that I am a more well-rounded clinician overall [because of my liberal arts education]. I am able to converse more fluently and present topics to an audience with greater ease as a result of my liberal arts, music and performance education.

Get involved in a wide variety of activities, find ones that are enjoyable, and focus on those. Certainly, areas that are related to medicine are worthwhile, but medical schools are also interested in variety and other interests.”
