After graduating from Penn, Kevin spent a year and a half continuing his undergraduate pediatric cancer research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. At the conclusion of his research projects, he moved back home to Southern California to further develop his medical school application, including self-studying for the MCAT and earning his master’s.
