Over the summer, 15 college freshman and sophomore students will:

  • Present and participate in weekly journal clubs.
  • Participate in a hands-on tour of the Gross Anatomy Lab.
  • Sit for a mock MCAT exam.
  • Partake in a Lab Techniques Workshop and Clinical Skills Workshop.
  • Participate in Career Development Workshops (Presentation Workshop and Interview Skills Workshop).
  • Scrub into surgeries at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
  • Give an oral, written and poster presentation of their research in front of their family, friends and colleagues.
  • Have on going mentorship by a "Big Sib" (a current MD-PhD student) as well as weekly meetings with the Program's leadership.
We are looking forward to what the students will learn and accomplish this summer!
