Student Spotlight

Christine Ellington, Physician Assistant Program Class of 2014
Biology/Physician Assistant Program

My MU journey has been rewarding in many ways. I engaged in community outreach programs while attending Methodist, and by being part of the women’s soccer team for four years, I learned how to lead by example.  If you’re trying to decide on the best school for you, look for the place that is the best fit for your future and your happiness. For me, that place was Methodist. I chose MU because of the small student-to-professor ratio, the faculty, the athletics program, and the undergraduate and graduate programs.  My professor and advisor, Dr. Lori Brookman Cornwell, helped me stay on track to reach my goal of becoming a physician assistant. She was always willing to take a moment to talk with me or help me with any problems. The small, family feel at Methodist made me feel like I belonged.  Overall, if I had to summarize my experience at MU in one word, it would be “enriching.”
