Millikin always wanted to see me succeed. These are only the very first couple of steps. I am here because of the encouragement I received from the professors that taught me.

I didn’t choose this profession for the stories, or the money, and definitely not for the bodily fluids, but to selflessly give myself to my patients and the profession, and to touch the lives of those who need it most. 


Cody Rodas

The professors and faculty at Millikin are what drive student success. It creates a great atmosphere to learn. The performance learning aspect is what helped me realize my passion for improving the lives of everyone I come in contact with.
