Kyle Bellu
Biology:  Class Of 2019
Intern at Baptist Heart Institute

The Baptist Mindset:  Kyle Bellu, a junior biology major with minors in chemistry and cognitive neuroscience, had the internship of a lifetime at Baptist Memorial Hospital last semester. It is not often that a student is offered the chance to shadow surgeons during operations, but Kyle was that exception. “It was incredible to come after hours and have the connection with the doctors” as he shadowed brain surgeries in the evening hours one Wednesday night. Kyle has ambitions to earn a MD and PhD and become a neurosurgeon, and he has particular research interests in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in military personnel and contact sport athletes. Darla Belt, Kyle’s mentor during the internship, saw this experience as a means for Kyle to explore his interests, especially after learning of his career ambitions in the medical field.

With the help of the Surgery Administrator, Kyle was able to get a hands-on experience very few get. Kyle stated, “Darla and I established a very close relationship, and I learned so much through her example, and I greatly admire her intellect, determination and kindness.” Baptist Memorial Hospital prides their institution on providing quality healthcare while keeping the three-fold ministry of Christ in mind: Healing, Preaching, and Teaching. Kyle went on to say, “Some of the best doctors in the world work at Baptist. I was very fortunate, and I really bought into the Baptist mindset of caring and excellence, which I fully intend to apply in my own practicing of medicine in the future.” We know one thing is for sure: Baptist will never lose sight of this Scotland native, soccer superstar, and his determination to heal and help others.
