What Our Students Say

Roxana Ghadimi

"I highly recommend this course for high school students to learn more about what it's like to pursue a career in medicine. It is a long path but a very rewarding career, so knowing if this is something that might interest you early on will give you a great head start in college."

Roxana Ghadimi
Medical Student at NYU Grossman School of Medicine
Victoria Chen

"I wish I had this opportunity in high school! So much of what I knew about medicine was through chance encounters with doctors and sporadic shadowing opportunities. I wish I had access to a structured summer program like this as an intro to the field."

Victoria Chen
