Marta Hoes is not only a first-year student at Texas Tech University School of Law. She’s also the first student in the university’s new joint J.D./M.D. degree program offered by the law school and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine.

“I’ve always wanted to practice medicine; it’s always been a passion of mine,” says Hoes. “This [joint degree] opens a door to a whole world of possibilities I can do with medicine, like writing health-care law and being involved in making health-law policy.” Hoes obtained a bachelor’s degree in German from Texas Tech University in May.
