My name is Madison Britten and I’m from Amarillo, Texas. I am a Spring Scholar studying neuroscience and public health at Tulane on a Pre-medical track. Ever since I visited New Orleans for the first time my junior year of high school, I fell in love with Tulane and knew I couldn’t see myself anywhere else!
As a Spring Scholar, starting school in January allowed me the time to explore my dream career. This fall, I interned at High Plains Neurosurgery where I had the opportunity to shadow a neurosurgeon! I watched surgeries two days a week and worked in the clinic one day a week for the whole semester. It was truly a life changing experience and it helped increase my aspirations of one day becoming a neurosurgeon. In addition, I had a part time job at a clothing store to save some spending money for school.
At Tulane, I am already involved in a few organizations. Some of these include SOAR (Students Organizing Against Racism), the Women in Science club and the Minority Association of Pre-Med Students. Additionally, I was able to continue in HOSA, a health science competition team I participated in since freshman year of high school, now on the college level! Joining organizations early this semester really helped me meet a lot of new people and get adjusted to Tulane!
