Past Participant Comments

"As a biology enthusiast wanting to pursue a career in medicine, this program offered a great opportunity to get a glimpse into the future of medicine. Being able to attend interactive sessions with pioneers like Dr. Snyder was extremely exciting. I'm very grateful to the program director and his team for being so welcoming, supportive, and engaging. This was the BEST summer program I ever took."

"It was one of the most interesting and interactive summer workshops I have ever attended. All the speakers presented the information in a way where anyone regardless of their education level would understand it, and they were always open to questions. I learned a lot of new things that have even changed my own personal outlook on medicine and its future."

"This workshop was very insightful and thought-provoking. I loved how passionate the presenters were and how we were encouraged to discuss and share ideas. Definitely a valuable investment of time."
