Tufts University School of Medicine - UMass Boston Pre-Medical Enrichment Program
In January, twenty-four of our Pre-Medical students spent three weeks at the Tufts University School of Medicine as part of an enrichment program designed to introduce future doctors and scholars to the kind of teamwork inherent in medical problem-solving. Students participated in seminars, gained valuable medical research experience, and built connections that will foster their development as graduate-level researchers and clinicians.
Here is what some of the participants had to say:
“Everyone at Tufts was very helpful and they are amazing professionals. This program opened my mind to possibilities within Biomedical research that I could not have imagined before.” – Carina R
Read Carina's op-ed on International Collaboration in Stem Cell Research.
“I was delighted to find that the student mentors know how to balance their academic and social lives, and the professors are engaging and extremely fun. Also, the fact that you're exposed to so many different areas in medicine is comforting because you can find yourself at home in a certain specialty.” – Yuna F
Read Yuna's op-ed, "Traffic Jam," about HIV.
“This wasn't a typical shadowing experience! They tried to involve us and we even got to interact with the patients as much as we wanted at the Sharewood Clinic, which is run by medical students and doctors. We were really allowed to experience what it was like to be a medical student.” – Kristina D
