Marta Hoes is a student shaped by her experiences. She knew that medicine was her professional calling from an early age, and the time she has spent traveling has broadened her worldview and enriched her education.
As an undergraduate at Texas Tech, Hoes realized her interest in law and decided to remain at her alma mater because of its distinct J.D./M.D. dual-degree program. In fact, Hoes was the first candidate admitted to the program, which spans six years and allows accepted students to pursue both legal and medical educations.
The program also engages its students in a number of active learning experiences. Hoes has helped to resolve disputes in the School of Law’s health care mediation clinic, served on the school’s Administrative Law Journal, and interacted with the community through her Early Clinical Experience course as a medical student.
As for her career plans, Hoes says she looks forward to exploring the many opportunities available at the intersection of law and medicine.
Along with a commitment to academics, Students of Integrated Scholarship pursue a course of lifelong study through their involvement in active learning experiences. Modes of active learning include internships, service learning, undergraduate and graduate research, and opportunities to study abroad.
