- Participants are expected to participate in all scheduled program activities.
"I really enjoyed the hands on experience I was able to have, but it was so much more than shadowing. The Monday meetings were very informative and just as helpful as the time I spent shadowing. I also enjoyed hearing the various stories others experienced and the impact the prior week had on the group. One of the best aspects was meeting other pre-medical students who are going through the same process. Some of these friendships will continue well past the month of June."
