“...a better, well-rounded person”

James Alstott, M.D., Class of 2009

James Alstott

Hometown: Laurens, Iowa
Majors: Biology/Pre-med
Professional School: University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, 2013. James is now completing his three years of Internal Medicine residency at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“At BVU, I was endowed with a science foundation and the study skills necessary for a career in medicine. I have no doubts that the academic rigor and promotion of intellectual curiosity within BVU’s Science Department had a direct correlation with the success I experienced at medical school.  To be a great doctor, you have to be a great person. Through leadership opportunities, volunteering, and extra-curricular activities, BVU allowed me to become a better, well-rounded person.”
