Philip LeRiche

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Growing up, Philip LeRiche always had an interest in STEM. Combining this with the decision to dedicate his career to helping others, he realized that becoming a doctor was his perfect path. His grandfather's cancer diagnosis prompted him to extend this goal to specializing in oncology.

Gaining a firm foundation for medical school as a Southeastern chemistry major, Philip is now taking the first steps in his mission to one day help put an end to cancer.
