Comments from Past Participants

 

"Medical Leaders of Tomorrow program helped me get an understanding on what the medical field is really about and that all those 'intimidating' years of medical school are worth it in the future. One of my greatest highlights was being able to ask medical students questions on their experience and meeting wonderful people who I can connect with. These individuals are truly great people who I hope to keep in my life even after this journey ends."
"Medical Leaders of Tomorrow helped me to overcome my shyness; to be more confident to experience and be a part of this program."
"Medical Leaders of Tomorrow also helped me to become more sociable in a work environment. I learned to work in a group, to work better and be more efficient with my fellow peers."
"Medical Leaders of Tomorrow has helped me achieve this by giving me first-hand testimonies from college students themselves. I also learned about how to apply to college and what steps to take in preparation. This was a really great experience and I made many memories and friends."
"Medical Leaders of Tomorrow has definitely helped me become a better leader and has made me realize that I don’t just want to be a doctor, but be someone much more."
