Quadriplegic Doctor Meghan Wilson is an Inspiration
Medical officials are praising Meghan Wilson for her graduation from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine with M.D. and Ph.D. degrees, with added praise to the medical school for taking the risk of accepting her into the medical scientist training program. The 33-year-old Tampa Bay native represents a rare case of a person with quadriplegia -- full paralysis from her shoulders down -- being accepted not only into medical school but the more selective and onerous MST program, which takes eight to nine years or even longer to complete. In her case, it took nine years.
