" I enjoyed and valued many of my courses. Critical thinking and appraisal of information in the light of a Christian worldview permeated all of my science courses. That has stayed with me. Redeemer prepared me with challenging courses that led me to have good study habits. It also taught me to critically appraise information. It can be easy to get weighed down by never-ending to-do lists and many people in this profession suffer from burnout. But, my faith gives me perspective, and I try to keep a humble attitude while serving my patients. I believe God calls us all to develop our talents to the fullest and do our best wherever he has placed us. For me in medicine, that means working hard to sharpen my knowledge and skills in order to give the people I see the best care possible. After graduating from Redeemer in 2011, Dr. Kristen VanSligtenhorst studied at Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry where she has recently completed her MD.
