Every month, we’ll get to know one of the Student Tech Leads!

Jess Domingo

Class of 2026/Tri-Cities


I went to a free computer camp when I was 10. I still have a disk of games I designed and coded on a CD ROM! One of my favorites to code and play was a knock-off and much less cool version of Space Invaders.

What’s your pre-med school technology background?

I’ve been taking photos and editing videos since I was in high school. When I worked as photojournalist in college, I started to use Adobe Lightroom and other post-processing programs a lot more. Then when I commissioned into the Army, I became my unit’s resident “tech person” and was a assigned to learn about and teach others how to use our navigation/communication systems. Reflecting on my life, I have always really been intrigued by technology and its utilization in different career fields.

What’s your favorite app? 

Spotify! Without a doubt—I use it daily. Music is a big part of my study regimen. I highly recommend the Study Lofi playlist by Lofi Girl on Spotify; it definitely has helped me focus this throughout this first year.

I recently started using Headspace and also think mindfulness apps can be helpful! Med school is busy. This app helps me take a little bit of time to check-in with myself in the mornings and evenings.

What’s the best part about being a Student Tech Lead? 

I honestly enjoy the little moments with my peers and instructors while I get the tech set up for the day. Most of the time, we’re all sitting in class together, learning and listening, but it’s before and in between sessions where I get to catch up with my classmates or learn more about our great instructors/faculty.

How do you plan to incorporate technology into your practice as a physician? 

Technology in medicine is becoming more and more prevalent, and it is important that all of us have a good grasp on how to use charting systems, basic medical devices, and especially video calling. I specifically want to become a cardiac electrophysiologist, and they utilize TONS of technology to study, detect, and treat electrical abnormalities that cause irregular rhythm/beats of the heart. Pacemakers, high-density electroanatomic mapping, and force-sensing ablation catheters are just few types of devices that cardiac electrophysiologists use.

I’m especially excited about home transtelephonic monitoring (TTM), which allows for cardiac electrophysiologists to check on their patients' pacemaker devices remotely, ultimately giving more time for patients to spend living their life and less time in a doctor’s office!

Aside from technology, what do you nerd out over? 

Music, photography, books, or art of any kind. I just have a deep appreciation for people that are able to express themselves in such moving and complex ways.

What is your number 1 tech tip for med students or faculty?

Move your body while you study! I tend to fidget when I have to sit down and pay attention for long periods of time, so I love to walk at a slow pace on a treadmill or stand while I watch lectures. For those in Spokane, there’s a walking treadmill with a desk in the library!
