You'll dig into a single subject through an experiential, hands-on course that integrates field trips and guest speakers with discussion sections and collaborative work. Students can expect to amass a wealth of knowledge and college experience in a short amount of time.

The program really confirmed my plans of becoming a health care professional. In addition, I made some great friends from across the country that I still talk to. I would recommend this program to any student contemplating a career in medicine." Celia, Hickory, NC
