About My Research Experience

2015 Alumni Testimonials

“I really liked meeting my mentor and having time to talk with them about their careers and projects. I appreciated the informality as it helped me gain a better and deeper understanding of who my mentor was.”

“I loved it so much… I learned a lot of things you usually do not learn in high school and it felt nice to have something with me that I was able to put to use once I got back to school. Also, lunch with Dr. Chen gave me insight on how life as a surgeon is and it also motivated and taught me that I can pursue my dreams and turn them into reality. The seminars were well worth it and I would recommend it for every high school student that attends this program. Even if they do not want to pursue a career in medicine it is still a good and useful tool to take back with them.”

“I believe that this is a once in a lifetime experience for me and so far I am loving every single moment of it.”

“Being able to see the results, presenting it to your fellow peers, and making a difference in people’s lives.”

“Being exposed to all of the different careers I can potentially pursue in medicine provided me with a deeper knowledge on what academic path I should follow.”

“When shadowing a surgeon, I discovered just how important they are and how they impact the lives of their patients. I learned it takes lots of commitment and practice to be in the healthcare field.”

“I loved getting to know my mentor on a personal level and also discuss their project as well.”
