Director at Mastering Medical Education
Ernie Morton has always had a passion for science and helping others. This has led him to pursue a career as a physician where he will be able to combine his passions in order to improve the quality of people’s lives. Ernie began his journey toward becoming a physician by earning a B.S. in Biomedical Science. After earning his bachelor’s degree Ernie attended a master’s program where he earned a M.S. in Biomedical Science. After completion of his M.S. Ernie was granted admittance into medical school and is now enrolled in a dual-degree program at his medical school, pursuing his MD and MBA.
His family works in the public services and business sectors thus he was never exposed to physicians, their work environment, nor their career pathways. As a medical student coming from a family of non-physicians much of the application process was a learn-as-you-go experience for Ernie. Not being familiar with the process and having no family members who were familiar either, Ernie was forced to spend valuable time investigating the application process. As a pre-med student, in the midst of competing for admission, he realized the need for both a comprehensive overview of the application process and the strategies needed to develop an extremely competitive application. With so much required of pre-med students prior to applying, time is of the essence. Ernie’s goal in providing an online course is to help familiarize students with the application process and develop strategies that increase their chances of gaining admittance.
