Since winning the Jostens Trophy in 2015, Bugarinovic has continued his drive toward a medical career. His unique journey has taken him from Serbia to Canada, Kansas, Baltimore and Harvard Medical School. Along the way he is bringing undergraduates back to his native country through a hospital shadowing exchange program.
He's our guest in this month's Around the Nation podcast.
