Alina Mitina, OMS II
Alina Mitina is originally from Leviv, Ukraine. She moved to the United States with her mother at the age of seven. Her mother was a physician in Russia and she always hoped to follow in her footsteps. Alina majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry at California State University Channel Islands. Throughout her undergraduate summers she traveled to New York and New Mexico to perform basic science research in Biochemistry and Molecular biology. As she entered medical school at Western University of Health Sciences she planned on continuing her work in basic scientific research. Working on research in Neuroscience has not only allowed her to continue developing critical thinking skills, but has solidified knowledge that she has learned throughout her systems courses. Alina is looking forward to starting rotations as she is still exploring what speciality she hopes to purse.
