USP Profile

Joseph Plaksin
2011 Psychology, BS

Winning second place in the Delaware Valley Science Fairs greatly impacted the next few years for Joseph Plaksin, then a junior in high school. His prize? A $7,000 annual scholarship to University of the Sciences. After some research and a visit, he knew the school was ideal for him.

“I really liked the school’s reputation in terms of preparing students for medical school,” said Plaksin, the University’s valedictorian.

Part of this reputation comes from the professors, from whom Plaksin said he learned a great deal—inside and outside of the classroom.

“For me, it’s the relationships I’ve developed over the last four years that have impacted me the most, not just the material learned in class,” said Plaksin.

He will matriculate at NYU School of Medicine in the fall, looking to enter a medical specialty with his MD in which he will incorporate research.
