A determined 43-year-old Shamone Gore Panther has returned back to university to fulfill her dream of studying medicine after giving birth to four children.
Shamone Gore Panter is a mother of 4 who returned to medical school years after she had graduated from school and started a different career to achieve her dream of becoming a medical doctor.
Shamone said she had planned to enroll in medical school in 2007, but she ultimately took a different route because she was nervous to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT)which is required for entrance to medical school.
Giving up on medical school, she returned to school to earn a doctorate degree. Shamone began a new career as an assistant lecturer at Cleveland State University and worked at the Cleveland Clinic to study cardiovascular genetics.
Shamone said it was speaking with her pregnant niece about the COVID-19 vaccine, she decided to return to school. She added that she successfully taught one of her family members about the advantages of taking the vaccine, which rekindled her passion for pursuing a medical career.
“I thought, ‘This is what I need to be doing every day,” she said. Shamone said she squeezed out time in between taking care of her kids to prepare thoroughly for the Medical College Admission Test.
Shamone stated that she passed the test with a score of above 500 and was accepted into Ohio State University for a three-year medicine degree program.
