After graduating, she plans on enrolling in a post-baccalaureate program to pursue her pre-medical course requirements and study for the LSAT. Caitlin’s ultimate goal is to enroll in a joint MD/JD program, work as a physician for her Tribal healthcare clinic, and serve on Tribal council, where she can better improve her Tribe’s relationship with the Michigan government and enhance Tribal sovereignty.
