Dr. Pamela Peters is an OB-GYN (obstetrician-gynecologist) currently completing a fellowship in gynecologic oncology at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. As a pre-med, she studied neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis. She received a scholarship to attend medical school at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine before completing her residency at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
"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."
"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."
Every school has its own way of teaching and learning (aka “pedagogy”). Here's what you can expect from ours.
