Meet Our Students & Alumni
"The disparity of health care in poorer countries, such as St. Vincent, sparked a new passion that simply grew over time. This energy was refocused into a desire to serve the community by becoming a doctor. After extensive research, I immediately gravitated to the College of Medicine’s post-baccalaureate pre-medical program. Their mission to assist underrepresented communities and increase involvement in the field of medicine aligned perfectly with my goals and aspirations."
"My time in the research lab has been equally wonderful, though a bit more applicable to what I want to pursue after my master’s program. Working in Dr. Berkowitz' lab has given me more opportunities to hone my skills and practice genetic analyses of mammals. I have also learned more about what other graduate programs at Drexel do, and I’ve gotten to meet people outside of my program that I otherwise would not have."
"I am currently one of the co-presidents for the plastic surgery interest group, on the executive board of the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA), and this past summer, I did NeuroHIV research through the Department of Immunology and Microbiology. I have met so many great people through these experiences and it really has helped me find a community within the College of Medicine."
