Pauline is a born and raised California girl. She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of science in Human Biology and minor in Public Health from the University of California, San Diego. Following college, she spent three years teaching 7th-grade life science in the Oakland Unified public school district. Though her love of teaching never waned, she decided a career in medicine was a better fit and attended the University of California, San Francisco for medical school.
Her research during medical school focused on the use of active surveillance in low-risk prostate cancer, as well as the role of simulation in urologic surgical education. She hopes to continue pursuing these research interests during her training at UNC.
