Kyle Eliason

Kyle Eliason says he learned what medicine was all about before he even arrived on campus. It was Dec. 1, 2004, when he underwent a living donor liver transplant, donating 55 percent of his liver to his brother and best friend, Eric. Eliason’s four-year Aesculapian Scholarship was made possible by the medical school’s annual fund and now he’s headed to the University of Iowa’s internal medicine residency program.
