Sean Mahajan

Hello! My name is Sean Mahajan and I am the SI leader for Anatomy and Physiology II/Lab with Dr. De. I am a part of the Dual DO 4+4 program and am majoring in Biology with a Psychology minor. Anatomy and Physiology II is definitely a difficult course for many as it is filled with so many facts to memorize. However, I have made many mnemonics and tricks I hope to provide for students who struggled with the same things I did. While at Nova, I am the IOC Chair for NSU Rotaract and am a member of the Spanish Club. I would definitely recommend anyone to join these clubs as they are a lot of fun and filled with great people. Some fun facts about me are that I have been playing the cello since I was four, my brother is an M4 medical student and I have moved 4 times. I look forward to being a member of SI and meeting everyone!
