A 21-year-old man from Chicago received an M.D. from the University of Chicago, making him the youngest person ever to receive the award from the university.
Sho Yano started college at the age of nine and then he entered medical school just three years later.
According to Huffington Post, Yano was already writing at the age of three and composing music at the age of five. He will now be graduating from the Pritzker School of Medicine next week. That is where Yano also received a Ph.D. in cell biology and molecular genetics.
According to Chicago Sun, Yano was just twelve when he got his undergraduate degree from Layola University Chicago. In America, 23 is the average age of students entering medical school. There were some schools that actually rejected Yano admittance due to his age.
According to UPI, Yano will go on to do a residency in pediatric neurology.
Yano said that he really enjoys taking care of kids. He said that even if patients cannot be cured, there is still a lot of things that can be done for them.
