Ralph Bauer

Well, hello there. My name is Ralph and I’ll be your MiM this year. A little about me - I was born in Louisville, KY but moved to the Dallas area while I was still just a wee lad. I went to Flower Mound HS before moving to Austin, where I attended UT and received a B.A. in psychology. I took some time between undergrad and medical school to travel, have as much fun as possible, and work as a bartender and endoscopy tech for Austin Gastro. As far as career goals, I am applying to emergency medicine where I hope to pursue my interests in global health, disaster relief, and wilderness medicine. My hobbies include backpacking, running, yoga, playing guitar, and really anything that gets me outside and active (especially if my dog can tag along). Feel free to send any questions you may have my way. I look forward to meeting you all!

Hi, I’m originally from a smaller town in Idaho. I attended Brigham Young University and graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science. Before medical school, I spent 6 months as a stay at home father of a one daughter while starting a small business that my wife and I still run. I am married to my wife and we now have two daughters who helped me stay motivated and grounded during medical school. We have loved the people, culture, Spurs, and warmth of San Antonio. My hobbies outside of medical school are wrestling with my two children, running local races, making videos of my children or anything else interesting, and building wood projects. I enjoyed mentoring and teaching in college and I wanted to guide other’s journey through medical school. This program has provided me the resources to be successful in medical school and to choose a career path that aligns my interests and future goals. Now it’s my turn to help you! I am dedicated to help you transition into medical school and explore your interests. Please reach out with any questions.

I'm originally from a small town called Morgan, Utah, but I graduated from high school in Springville, Utah, where my family currently lives. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in Spanish Literature and Linguistics. After graduation I divided my time as a Spanish teacher, curriculum developer, cancer researcher, and medical interpreter. Two of my brothers attended dental school here at UTHSCSA and I decided to follow them to San Antonio. I plan to pursue a career in pediatrics and later do a fellowship in hematology and oncology. My hobbies include pretending to play guitar, playing any number of obscure strategy games, running (or remembering what it was like), and best of all spending time with my super awesome wife and three mini-humans. Feel free to ask me about having a family in medical school, being a nontraditional student, medical Spanish, or pretty much anything else that comes to mind. Best of luck and I look forward to working with you this year!

I'm from San Antonio and love being back. I went to UT for undergrad HOOK EM! Where I studied psychology and biology. After college I scribed and traveled for a year then came to medical school. I plan on going into OBGYN, perhaps a fellowship in pelvic floor or minimally invasive surgery. In my free time I love to be outside - I like to run, be by the water, play frisbee, eat in the sun. I love to try new restaurants and cook - food is a big thing for me. I also like to watch Seinfeld in my free time.

I'm from Austin, Texas and majored in Plan II Honors and History! After college, I took a year off to work at Pine Cove summer camp and then serve as an intern with the Austin Stone Community Church. I also did a lot of babysitting and tutoring :) I want to work as a pediatrician or OB/GYN in the Middle East with my fiance once I graduate! In my free time, I love to run, read, make music and spend quality time with friends!

Leah Bailey

Hi friends!! My name is Leah Bailey, and I'm from Houston, TX. I am a proud member of the fightin' Texas Aggie class of 2016, whoop! While I was there, I double majored in Biology and Nutritional Sciences and was highly involved in Aggie Sisters for Christ, the Pre-Medical Society, and was even in a steel drum band for a year! I love Jesus, playing any sport (but especially soccer), sushi, naps, all animals, hiking, and doing anything outside! I have always had a passion for helping patients with cancer and surgery is fascinating, so I'm currently leaning towards surgical oncology, but my mind is open to anything and I am excited to see where life takes me. I hope y'all come to love our school and medical school as much as I do!

Hey guys! My name is Tyson Jergensen. I spent several years of my childhood in Dallas, Texas but moved to Utah before starting high school and stayed there until I graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Physiology and Dev. Biology. I came back as fast as I could and love it here in San Antonio! My fields of interest change weekly, but dermatology and anesthesiology have been on my mind most recently. I am passionate about sports, health, exercise, and food. My wife and I enjoy trying new and exotic restaurants as well as trying our hands at cooking. Veritas has provided me with friends and mentors that have helped me have a wonderful med school experience, so I look forward to returning the favor!
