DR. MIKAYLA TROUGHTON

CLASS OF 2018

Residency in Anesthesiology

University of Arkansas College of Medicine

 

“After having looked into many medical schools abroad, UMHS stood out to me because they truly care about you as an individual and as a student, not to mention the great facilities and brand new anatomy lab on the island. I wanted a more personalized experience during medical school and I liked the fact that UMHS offered small class sizes along with TA sessions, peer mentors and office hours catering to all learning styles. Everyone at UMHS was very supportive and the caring environment enabled you to reach your full potential.”


UMHS 2018 graduate Dr. Mikayla Troughton started a residency in Anesthesiology last summer at the University of Arkansas College of Medicine. She has come a long way from wanting to be a veterinarian while growing up in Enniskillen, Ontario, Canada (an hour northeast of Toronto), volunteering for five years at a local veterinary hospital. After seeing animals euthanized for various reasons she realized “my emotions got the best of me, yet I still wanted to be in health care.” She decided to become a doctor instead to treat humans and prevent disease.


Dr. Troughton completed her Bachelors of Science in biology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. When looking to apply to medical schools, she admits the decision to attend UMHS was a no-brainer. "“After having looked into many medical schools abroad, UMHS stood out to me because they truly care about you as an individual and as a student, not to mention the great facilities and brand-new anatomy lab on the island,” she said.
