Biological Systems Engineering, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Joining EnMed from Napa, California, Kevin Birdsall hopes to gain a more complete view of medicine while in the program. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biological systems engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and has research interests in understudied diseases affecting minority and underserved groups.
Before medical school, Kevin volunteered at Go Baby Go!, an interdisciplinary organization that matched physical and occupational therapists with engineers to build pediatric wheelchairs for children with disabilities. In his free time, Kevin enjoys running, playing soccer, cooking and music. He has hopes to ultimately enter academia to train future physicianeers.
