Rose-Hulman might be ranked as the nation's No. 1 undergraduate engineering college, but that doesn’t mean its graduates automatically go on to careers in engineering.
Just ask Evan Kokoska, MD.
Now the Director of Pediatric Surgery at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, Kokoska first earned a degree in chemical engineering from Rose-Hulman before attending medical school at Washington University in St. Louis.
Coming out of high school, Kokoska had offers from Johns Hopkins and Rose-Hulman, but ultimately chose Rose.
"That’s a decision I’ll never regret," he said. "I’m super happy I made it.”
Kokoska shares more below about the value of a Rose-Hulman education, how it helps him in his career as a surgeon, and advice for students considering a career in medicine.
