Meet Our Students & Alumni
"The MLAS program has given me the opportunity to develop my study methods while taking challenging new courses that I may not have had the exposure to during my time as an undergraduate. Since I have taken courses like graduate physiology, pharmacology and medical microbiology, I have a strong foundation of knowledge that I am able to build on during my four years of veterinary school."
"The combined didactic and clinical work in this program will give you the skills and confidence for success as a PA. It will also give you a really large network of people to reach out to for the continued growth of your PA career." Read more.
"I'm so glad that I switched to IHS. The community, like the other students – everybody just genuinely wants to see each other succeed. That is something that's so refreshing because it's very uncommon in pre-med culture. In the IHS group chat, everyone's always encouraging one another. You see people saying, ‘Oh, this is another volunteer opportunity' or, ‘here's an opportunity to study this or that.' It's just really nice, and refreshing, and a great group of people. I'm really glad to be a part of it."
