Episode 43 is here and it is with U.S Medical Student Saul Bautista.
Saul Bautista is from Newark, New Jersey, a fourth year MD/MPH student at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and military veteran. In the midst of two wars, he opted to forgo college and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 2004.
His experience working with wounded soldiers at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, a trauma center in the European theater, is what prompted him to pursue medicine. Upon his return from military service he went on to attain a bachelor’s degree in Biology from RutgersNewark. As a first-year medical student he founded the NJMS Lifestyle Medicine Interest Group, oversaw the implementation of numerous student fitness programs, community engaged lifestyle medicine initiatives, and became involved in “Code Blue: redefining the practice of medicine” a documentary film which presents the practice of lifestyle medicine in response to the state of our healthcare system.
Saul plans to pursue a combined residency in internal medicine and pediatrics and will integrate lifestyle medicine within his training. His research interests are in myokine physiology and the molecular transducers of physical exercise in humans to understand how exercise mitigates and reverses chronic disease processes.
Saul is committed to transforming the practice of medicine, he believes that a focus on population health, health promotion and wellness will be the pillars that structure health care in the 21st century.
