Courtney Ackerman '05, MD

    Major: Biology
    Premedical Program

    I am a hematologist/oncologist in Silver Spring, MD which is truly a dream come true. I live in my hometown of  Sykesville, MD with my husband, two daughters, and our Bernese mountain dog, Sully. I love watching the Ravens!

    Favorite Professor

    Dr. Verville was a great mentor for the pre-med track.

    Fondest WC Memory

    Being a coxswain on women's rowing team spending many days on Chester River.

    Let’s Hear It for the Liberal Arts

    I loved being part of the tight knit community at WC. Having smaller classes and the ability to regularly interact with my professors helped me to prepare for medical school and beyond. Also being part of the rowing team was invaluable in terms of discipline, time management, and teamwork.
