Rizul Naithani

Student Division Region 4 Director

Rizul is a fourth year medical student at Campbell University School of Medicine. She obtained her B.S. degree in Clinical Laboratory medicine and minored in Chemistry from UNC-Chapel Hill. In college, she was active in research from freshman year where she focused on patent medical technology and invested her time with being part of the first american WHO simulation conference. Post-graduation, she decided to practice clinical lab medicine for 2 years after which she enrolled in medical school realizing her passions for patient care, health advocacy, and clinical research. She got exposed to AMWA in her first year and found the organization particularly pertinent for women who were first generation medical students like her. Her goals as a regional director are to expand resources and provide early mentorship which she believes is key to providing a successful career in medicine. As a student conducting her education in rural North Carolina, she is particularly interested in connecting local networks to enhance student learning and addressing important issues in the local health of the community. She is excited to serve as the regional director and hopes to host the regional conference on November 7th, 2020. This year’s conference will be hosted virtually (please visit the fb page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/10247827894/ to find the conference website link when it is made available). She is always happy to respond to any questions/concerns/recommendations and can be reached through email (region4@amwa-student.org).
