Student Spotlight

Elizabeth Moss- May 2019 Graduate

Elizabeth Moss Since I took my first steps at Murray State I have been an Exercise Science student. This summer I will be applying to Physician Assistant (PA) schools with hopes of attending the University of Kentucky starting January 2020. I truly believe that my background in exercise science will not only help me get accepted into PA school, but also succeed as a medical professional. At the beginning of my undergraduate career, I wasn’t quite sure about exercise science. However, as I have progressed into my upper level classes I have realized how it all relates to my future career. I hope to one day incorporate Exercise is Medicine® into my practice. I was recently accepted into the Summer Health Internship Program through the Northern Kentucky Area and Health Education Center (AHEC), and I plan to complete a project based on Exercise is Medicine®. Compared to other majors that often apply to PA programs, I’m so glad to be an exercise science student. Because of my experiences, I feel fully prepared for all my future endeavors.
