    GEA Member Spotlight

    Christle Nwora, Chair of the OSR


    In 1-2 sentences tell us about yourself.

    My name is Christle Nwora, I am third year medical student at McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and I have the privilege of serving as the National Chair for the Organization of Student Representatives. I want to pursue a career in primary care and stay involved in academic medicine long after my time as a medical student.

    How did you get involved in the GEA?

    My role as the OSR Chair gives me an opportunity to sit on the GEA Steering committee. I am excited to directly represent students in this space.

    What excites you most in medical education right now?

    Technology has changed the way I study and has expanded the number of resources available. I think this presents a unique opportunity for medical education to be more dynamic and responsive to the needs of all learners. I’m looking forward to seeing how medical schools will use technology to assist with knowledge acquisition, team-based skills and diagnostic reasoning.

    Where did you grow up?

    Murphy, Texas (located in the DFW – not too far from the original Southfork Ranch where Dallas was filmed!)

    What do you do for fun outside of work/school?

    I enjoy spending time in the gym or running. I ran my first half marathon right before I started studying for my USMLE Step 1 exam and hope to run another one before I submit my applications for residency!         

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and what would you do?

    An evening spent exploring Casco Viejo, Panama after a spent in one of their local parks sounds like a wonderful time to me!
