Patrick’s healthcare calling came to him as a teenager when he was attacked by a shark at age 16, which resulted in a lot of healthcare needs and many medical visits. He was already a good student and this emersion into the healthcare system at an early age sparked his interest to pursue medicine as a career. He has the desire to help others as he needed medical help in the past.
