-Participants are expected to participate in all scheduled program activities.


"The best aspect of this program was getting to experience the lifestyle of a physician.  From getting up early in the morning to not coming home until 6 or 7 pm at night.  There is no greater feeling then walking through the doors of the ER with your lab coat on, ready for a day of work."  Medical Horizons Participant
